Fomenting knowledge development: plans, techniques, architecture
A range of initiatives for intervention in the knowledge environment is described in three categories. Initiatives for fostering knowledge-sharing and learning support a cycle of activities, from the personalised and situation-specific to the generalised and formalised, by promoting the right conditions for success. Networking knowledge initiatives aim to make connections between knowledge sources and actors by augmenting existing network patterns; social network analysis is a key tool. Collaborative knowledge architectures can be structured as a set of discrete but interconnected layers or services; one aspect is collaborative records management.
