… to harness the wisdom of the crowds

October 7, 2015 at 9:29 am Leave a comment

We often talk in KM about how to try to gather in the best knowledge from different sources. It can be a tricky one because we all know how much gets lost in trying to distill knowledge into something suitable for an online database.

These are a few ideas to harness the wisdom of the many

  1. Create a wiki
  2. Create an online discussion board for new precedents/practice notes before publication
  3. Introduce everyone to Kaizen (continuous improvements by everyone)
  4. Create a knowledge map identifying all your experts so everyone knows who to talk to when
  5. Have a Knowledge Day or a Knowledge Fair and set up a stall, speak at meetings, hand out postcards and get everyone involved

start in KM if you are a law firm leader … thank contributors to your knowledge base
