From the knowledge management front-line Tuesday, 27 November It's always good to cross-check our KM programs against lists of failure and success factors. Here are two pretty comprehensive lists. Two of the most popular posts on this blog are " Top 7 reasons why Knowledge Management implementations fail.
Weber, which is an analysis of KM failure factors through a literature review, and which therefore provides a similar overview of success and failure factors. However the lists come at the issue from different angles - the Knoco list looks mostly at errors in KM implementation, Rosina's list looks mostly at errors in the KM solution or approach.
Failure factors Here are Rosina's 15 failure factors. Organizations that tried to develop a monolithic organizational memory for an entire organization have failed 2. KM approaches may fail when they do not integrate people, processes, and technology 3. KM approaches may fail when they are designed without input from all stakeholders 4.
KM approaches may fail when contributors do not know the ideal specificity of knowledge. KM approaches may fail due to lack of leadership support 6.
KM approaches may fail when users are afraid of the consequences of their contributions. KM approaches may fail when they store knowledge in unrestricted textual representations 8. KM approaches may fail when they rely on inadequate technology. KM approaches may fail when they are outside the process context.
KM approaches may fail when they ignore impediments to knowledge transfer. KM approaches may fail when they do not enforce managerial responsibilities KM approaches may fail when they do not properly oversee the quality of stored knowledge. KM approaches may fail when they do not promote collaboration.
KM approaches may fail when they are not able to show measurable benefits KM approaches may fail because users do not perceive value in contributing.
Here are my 7 failure factors for comparison see here for more explanation 1. KM is not introduced as a change program 2. The KM team does not have the right people to deliver change 3.
The KM team "preach only to the choir". KM is never embedded into the business 6. There is no effective high-level sponsorship Rosina's number 5 7. KM is not introduced with a business focus An overlap with Rosina's number 14 Success factors Rosina then turns these 15 around and states the converse, to derive 15 success factors.
KM approaches should be designed to support communities of practice.
KM approaches should integrate people, processes, and technology. KM approaches should be designed in collaboration with different stakeholders.
KM approaches should identify an adequate level of specificity. KM approaches should be strongly supported by the leaders of their target communities. KM approaches should be adopted by communities that encourage innovation. KM approaches should adopt representations with set of specific fields.
KM approaches should adopt technology only when it is suitable for a task. When technology is not adequate for a task and a suitable one is not available, then this task should be left to humans. KM approaches should be integrated into the context of target organizational processes. KM approaches should include methods to overcome impediments to knowledge transfer.
KM approaches should incorporate means of enforcing managerial responsibilities. KM approaches should include verification methods.This teaching case study features characters, hospitals, and healthcare data that are all fictional.
