Knowing what you know is not easy. Many law firms and corporate law offices have tried implementing Knowledge Management (KM) programs, only to be disappointed by the results.
An experienced author and speaker, Jerry Lawson has new ideas on KM. His main current interest is innovative practical techniques for improving KM return on investment. He is working on a book on this topic with the working title Knowledge Management for Lawyers: Building a Culture of Success.
Some of the ideas in the book will be publishing exposure drafts of certain sections and speaking about them to facilitate audience feedback. The draft version of the book’s preface is available now. Other chapters will be available soon.
What is the draft book about?
The key thesis is that human factors are by far the most important determinant of KM failure or success. How do you recruit providers of information, motivate them and make their contributions available to others? Other KM writers touch on this factor. It is our primary interest.
What are you selling?
We will be glad to sell you a copy of the KM book when it is published, but we don’t sell any KM hardware, software or services.
