Contracts will drive KM adoption


I hear from Shell, via Linked-In, that "We will be including Knowledge Management requirements in our ITTs for all our contractors".

So to get a contract with Shell, you need to be able to demonstrate KM.

Now we see market forces starting to drive the adoption of KM. It is no longer a nice-to-have - it is becoming a pre-requisite for doing business. As more companies take Shell's lead, KM will be driven deeper and deeper into the layers of contractors and subcontractors.

At last, KM is becoming a requirement.

Do you know the nature of the requirements? I'm familiar with specific content management requirements requested, but would be interested in what form Shell's is taking.

No, I don't.

However knowing Shell's approach to knowledge management, I suspect it will cover KM as a whole, and not just content management.
