#20 Personal Knowledge Management (PKM)

For this activity, we’ll borrow heavily from Harold Jarche and his Seek-Sense-Share model of personal knowledge management (PKM).  Over the past couple of months we’ve discovered a number of new tools that can be used to help you find, manage and share information. If you’re like most people, you’ve probably never stopped to give much thought about this process?

Seeking is finding things out and keeping up to date.

Sensing is how we personalize information and use it.

Sharing includes exchanging resources, ideas, and experiences with our networks as well as collaborating with our colleagues.

To quote Harold, “The most important aspect of PKM is that it is personal. In order to stick with a routine over time, people have to find what works for them.”  And to build upon that I think we should all share what that process looks like. Here are a couple of great examples to get you started.

For this activity, share your PKM routine. If you don’t have one, sketch out an idea of what you might like it to be.  What tools are you using to Seek? Which ones help you manage and make sense of things? And how are you sharing the good stuff you find? 

You can leave a comment, sketch it on paper and post a picture of it, draw it up on a slide and upload it to Slideshare.  Just be sure to share the link here in the comments.

I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours!? 😎
