    Why Not Apply Human Knowledge and Experience Transfer Methodologies to Robots?

    This is a short paper by me in MS Word format discussing adapting human knowledge and experience transfer methodologies in order to improve robots and make them much more flexible in coping with new tasks they have not previously done, or been coded for.

    This five page case study documents the use of LinkedIn for an unclassified online U.S. Army community based on an innovative initiative by Major General H.R. McMaster, Commanding General of the Fort Benning Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE). The intent of this case study is to provide enough information and understanding on how they did it to allow other U.S. military organizations to establish similar such communities on LinkedIn.

    This short ten-slide PowerPoint presentation covers my concept proposal for a radically new third generation online community of practice platform. This platform will be very different from existing first and second generation online community of practice platforms and will eventually replace most if not all of them.

    There tends to be a great inequality when it comes to participation and contributions on the average community of practice (COP). I have prepared this downloadable PowerPoint training graphic to display this. Here is a smaller preview version of the full size graphic:

    Training Presentation: Community of Practice (COP) Content Management

    Content management is one of those essential skills that every community of practice (COP) facilitator must learn if the COP they manage is to grow and prosper. This 16 slide PowerPoint training presentation will give you the basic skills and tips you need to be successful in this area.

    The file can be downloaded below.

    I have removed all background graphics and kept the theme simple to allow others to apply their own themes to this training presentation.

    Some folks have a difficult time understanding the concept and purpose of a topic on a Community of practice (COP). This short four page paper I have authored will help you to understand what topics are, how best to make use of them and how to avoid topic pitfalls. It will also give you some tips, based on my own personal experiences, on making them successful.

    Here is a short teaser from the paper:

    For knowledge managers an elevator speech is as essential as a business card. You need to be able to say who you are, what you do, what you are interested in doing and how you can be a resource to your listeners. An effective elevator speech can be a major marketing and promotion tool in your efforts to get senior leader buy-in for your knowledge management efforts.

    Before you can create a position description for a Knowledge Manager you must first create a task list of what it is that you want the Knowledge Manager to do and be responsible for within your ogranization.

    In 2010 I created such a task list for consideration by the U.S. Army at Fort Leavenworth, KS. I have updated and modified that task list to work in a variety of environments (Military, government, civilian, corporate, etc).

    Structured socialization is one of the most underappreciated and underutilized strategies in knowledge management. When used properly structured socialization allows for trust building, rapid real time transfer of knowledge and experience and the building of enduring social and networking connections.

    This 22 slide PowerPoint presentation is designed to teach you the brown bag luncheon knowledge transfer technique. It is one of many structure socialization techniques you can use as part of your overall organizational knowledge transfer strategy.
