ESJ: A Strategy for Personal Knowledge Management

Die Gedanken dieser Zusammenfassung sind nur schwer auf einen Begriff zu bringen: Es geht um Personal Knowledge Management und die Frage, wie ePortfolios es unterstützen können. Wichtig ist aus meiner Sicht vor allem das Stichwort: “Portfolios are critical to the concept of knowledge work as craft work.” Hier verlinkt der Autor zu einem älteren Eintrag mit dem entsprechenden Titel, der wiederum auf die “Unsichtbarkeit” von Knowledge Work eingeht: “One thing that differentiates knowledge work today from other craft work is that, except for final product, knowledge work is essentially invisible. All the important stuff takes place inside knowledge workers’s heads.” Weblogs und ePortfolios können helfen, Knowledge Work in Teilen wieder sichtbar zu machen. Warum das wichtig ist, hat Jim McGee weiter ausgeführt. Zwei Punkte möchte ich zitieren:

“The first will be increasing the value of knowledge work as a learning environment for other knowledge workers. As craft work, knowledge work fits more into apprenticeship learning models than in conventional training approaches. Making the work process and its intermediate products more visible will make the apprenticeship process more effective.
The second aspect of visibility is better leverage of communities of expertise and practice. More and more of the difficult problems organizations face require groups of experts to coordinate their expertise and invent multi-disiciplinary solutions. These problems don’t identify themselves in advance. They show up. They generally get addressed by whatever team can be identified and assembled quickly. The more visible you can make those experts and their expertise by making their thinking visible, the more likely you will be able to field a team that will work.”
