As it says up above, Perfect Path is a knowledge management consulting practice. So what’s with all this stuff about blogs and podcasts?
Well to me, knowledge management (see the sidebar for why I think it’s just management) is about how organisations and the individuals working in them:
- create new ideas;
- find & evaluate ideas from elsewhere;
- spread ideas about;
- save ideas for later;
- find ideas that they made earlier; and
- work out new ways of dealing with all of these things
This site is my way of exploring those things for myself on a daily basis. And it’s becoming a cool showcase for how such things work – if I can get my ideas out to loads of people then maybe I can help you do it too.
My experience with clients is that some of the big problems come in the “spread ideas about” bit and I think blogs and podcasts are great ways of doing that (and above all they are sooooo much cheaper to implement than the gazillions you may already be spending on other IT systems).
So if you’re having difficulty with getting your ideas heard, whether it’s called “knowledge management” or “internal communications” or “personal development” do give me a shout and lets talk about how I can help.
I asked for it, and I got it. The other day I asked how you saw me and this morning in my mailbox, Neal, the Podchef, had deposited some photoshop delights. I reproduce the one that made me (and my daughter) laugh out loud for your delectation.
This morning I talk a bit about last night’s pianosingsongcast and what else I got up to yesterday – together with what I have planned for today. You also get to hear how much it costs me for one month’s unlimited use of London’s splendid public transport system. Tune in next time to hear me reading from my weekly grocery till receipt!
What I didn’t talk about, was my listening fun yesterday: the cool soundseeing tour that Neal put out of him scrambling around in storage space and BicycleMark’s AudioCommunique #34 on philosophy and the connectedness of being.
Apologies to those who sat by their ipodders all day yesterday, waiting for an audioblog – I decided in the end to have a work at home day (including sitting in the garden, mmmmm….) and so the opportunity didn’t really arise.
I got to thinking about making your own entertainment so a made you this. I still can’t find Carnegie Hall on the map and as I say here: “Practice, it’s all about practice – if I played these tunes more often than once every 20 years, they might sound better”.
