CoP Success and the Concept of Shared Value
on Tuesday, October 24 2017
  A series of long-term consulting projects involving planning, launching, and sustaining high-performing communities of practice (CoP) reemphasized to me some of the basics necessary for sustainable CoP success. One of the leading contributors to CoP success and one of the leading contributors to marginalizing CoPs is how well one understands the concept of “shared value,” not only in the initial planning and launch of CoPs, but also in sustaining the CoPs. CoPs generally require investment in the form of funding, resources, people, participation, and time not only from the CoP memberships, but also from the organization that “licenses” the CoPs to operate. CoPs also generally require a “value” assessment before either the organization or the (potential) members will actively support and participate in the CoP. Failure to develop a value proposition and create a concept for shared value will greatly increase the probability the CoP …
Working KnowledgeCSP Practice-Based KM Maturity Model
on Tuesday, October 17 2017
This Practice-Based KM Maturity Model is an integration of KM research, planning, and implementations borne not only from practical experience as a practicing CKO, but also many years of consulting experience.  Like the CoP Maturity Model I recently published, I researched many models (research, academic, et al) in the domain and was unable to find one that met my needs...so I created this "practice-based" matrix. It's v1 and will evolve. I hope you find some value in it.

Working KnowledgeCSP Community of Practice (CoP) Maturity Model
on Wednesday, October 11 2017
Working KnowledgeCSP is currently supporting an international client that wanted a KM solution, strategy and implementation framework, centered on a network of people, a community of practice (CoP).  I researched many models in the domain and was unable to find one that met my needs. Consequently, I developed the Working KnowledgeCSP CoP Maturity Model, the evolution of previous work I began earlier last year.  The model evolved from our initial strategy for this client, mid pilot retrospects, CoP member interviews, senior leadership learned lessons, multiple lessons learned from our many clients’ culture & business and operational environments, and previous KM project work with a variety of federal, state, and international clients.
