Knowledge and Information Sharing Behaviours

Shawn at Anecdote posted a list of knowledge behaviours. Jack Vinson of Knowledge Jolt with Jack followed up with some additional behaviours aligned with the individual.

I already had the following list (developed for a professional services company) of what I have been calling information sharing behaviours.

Consultants

  • participate in knowledge sharing activities
  • develop resources as directed
  • proactively find and use resources

Senior Consultants

  • participate in knowledge sharing activities
  • work with associate directors to identify and develop best resources
  • proactively find and use resources

Associate Directors

  • lead and participate in knowledge sharing activities
  • lead idenfitication and development of best resources
  • promote resource usage

Directors

  • promote, lead and participate in knowledge sharing activities
  • assure use of tools and processes
  • enhance connections between disciplines
  • sponsor identification and development of best resources

List of activities that demonstrate required behaviours

  • Submitting an item to the "significant projects" list
  • Attending a knowledge-network meeting
  • Updating the Intranet
  • Submitting a document to a shared drive
  • Participating in an After Assignment Review
  • Updating our property database
  • Giving a presentation at a team meeting
  • Notifying team of a useful new resource (such as a dataset)
  • Maintaining project history database
  • Maintaining your CV
  • Providing new material for tenders and submissions folder

A few of these are, perhaps, more knowledge than information related but I think it is time for me to create another list that takes in Shawn's and Jack's insights.
