KM preso at the National HRD Network


Hope all of you are having a great Diwali 2010. Sorry i haven’t been able to update this blog as frequently as i would like [I am actually having a great time with my internal blog that this blog has taken a bit of a hit].

Last friday, i made a presentation on KM to the HRD Network. Per the organizer’s request, the slant is more towards Social Media. Here is the slidecast with voice [please post the comments here on this site, i am not able to respond to comments on the slideshare site.

Several people had asked me about how the Head Fake idea could be used for business benefit. Hopefully the HRD network preso answers that question. Look forward to your comments.

    Very interesting presentation! As always it was interesting right through, though these are things that we know already. May be you should post it in our internal blog as well. So that associates can go through it too. Just a suggestion.

    When I said “though these are things that we know”, I didnt mean everything :). There were certainly quite a few things that I had learnt. Thanks once again.

    Thanks Rams for the kind words. Yes I also believe that most of what I said our associates already know. That’s why I am not sure posting it internally will be of that much benefit.

    Excellent presentation sukumar.. i had heard your lecture lot of times internally, but still its refreshing to hear it again..

    the opinion that cafeteria as “waste of time” is still held as true for manufacturing companies, where the entire process is automated, employees just handling machines and products, and production managers given daily targets.

    Thanks for your kind words Senthil. Its sad that even after the widespread use of TQM in manufacturing, cafeterias are seen as a waste of time.

    Sir, Its a great dimension to the blogging and social media connecting. Many feel, including me that either very senior leaders in the organization or the people who may have relatively free time only do the blogging. After attending recent sessions with you on change management and innovation this thought has gone out of mind completely. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

    Thanks Sukumar for posting this here. The “Strength of weak ties” was enlightening in particular. And as far as head fake is concerned, here is I get out of it – Instead of asking folks to generate idea/content, provide a tool to express, associate reward mechanisms (even as simple as peer recognition, comments etc.) that acts as an intrinsic carrot.

    Cool. Very nice.

    Sure Ganesh. Thanks for your kind words. Yes, strength of weak ties is brilliant for a 1973 paper. As for Headfake you got it right.

    Excellent presentations!!! I am an avid follower of your internal blogs. I love the way you present, package information in your writings. I am seeing your external blog for the first time and found your presentation very useful. I would like to second Ram on his comment, it will be very useful to have this blog on our internal blogs as well.
