Top 10 KM blog posts of 2017

Thank you for your support for this blog in 2017 - here is a review of the year, and our Top 10 posts. More will follow in 2018

Average number of blog user sessions per week through 2017

Support for this blog has been steady during 2017 after a slight fall in February, a drop in weekly readership stats during the summer months, and a drop in November and December when the blog was suspended due to family reasons.

 The most popular posts from 2017  are listed below.  All are from the second half of the year, and half are "list" posts (17 deadly sins, 4 key stakeholders, 8 arguments etc).

 If you missed any of them, then why not have a look now!

 1. How Best Practices work - an example from Sport
This post looks at Best Practice in the context of sport, at the value the concept brings, and how best practice develops over time. This allows us to draw some conclusions for the world of KM.

 2. KMs 17 deadly sins
I found this in my archives, which comes from a Canadian Federal Government perspective in 1999. Notice how many still ring true today - truly little has changed in nearly 2 decades

3. 4 KM implementation lessons from Hoffman-LaRoche
Taken from an online article, this post looks at some lessons on KM implementation from the Hoffman-LaRoche experience.

4. What does a Director of Knowledge Management for a legal firm do?
"Knowledge Management" is a poorly defined term, and Knowledge Management jobs can range from low level data-entry clerks to high level strategic posts, and anything in between. However when you see "Director of Knowledge Management" vacancies, that tells you that this is a high level post. This post looks at the job description for one such post.

5. The 4 key stakeholders for Knowledge management
There are 4 main stakeholder groupings for Knowledge Management, and you need to create value propositions for each of the 4.  This post explains how.

6. Lesson Quality in Knowledge management
Lesson quality is a crucial component of lesson learning. Poor quality lessons just lead to Garbage-In, Garbage out.

7. Why its important to convey the value of Knowledge Management
Knowledge management is how people would manage their organisations if only they knew the value of their knowledge. If they understood the unrealised value of the knowledge assets they already hold, they would willingly invest in that value. And if they understood the value of the knowledge they risk losing, they would invest in retaining it.

8. What's the "white space" occupied by KM? 
If Knowledge management is to add any value as a discipline, it must cover areas not already covered by other disciplines, and occupy a space of it's own. This blog post explores what the KM White Space space might be.

9.  8 arguments for having a KM Policy
What's the point of having a KM Policy? This post provides 8 arguments in favour.

10. 10 things best-in-class KM companies have in common
There are many things that the world leaders in KM have in common. This post notes 10 of them.

 In addition - 

The most visited post this year was an old post from 2013 called "The illusion of confidence - test your overconfidence bias". 

The 2017 post with the most "+1"s was one on the topic of The leaders who grew up with KM

The 2016 post which received the most comments, was this post on Lesson Learning roles in the RCAF, which received 5 "thank you" comments from South Africa
