RE: [ba-ohs-talk] OHS/DKR Design for KM and Licensing

EA --    (01)

Thanks for your remarks.    (02)

High levels of encouragement and reward for "long-term planning and
projects" is an ideal environmental characteristic to expanding knowledge
sharing and OHS success.    (03)

An Asian archipelago off the northeast coast of the mainland, Japan, built
the world's second largest economy in large part to "long-term planning and
projects." It was achieved in almost no time!    (04)

Keiretsus and lifelong employment are long-term concepts, for example. A
cultural foundation is knowledge sharing due to these long-term
perspectives.    (05)

Ironically, in contrast to the technology saturated American knowledge
worker, many computing propositions aren't even in the orbit of the average
Japanese knowledge worker. They're rather unnecessary...    (06)

Anybody that's been to a yakatori bar knows how extraordinarily productive
and efficient transorganizational knowledge sharing, creation and diffusion
is achieved by Japanese workers.    (07)

What's also critical is lightweight always-on collaboration, social context
and pervasive access in portable devices, e.g., NTT DoCoMo. Compare DoCoMo
to something like the rigid offerings of Sprint or Notes and you'll get the
idea.    (08)

Another major factor is government/industry cooperation that enables,
encourages and indeed rewards "long-term planning and projects." This is a
natural behaviour for this recently feudal state, for example.    (09)

Thus, elemental and organic -behaviors- trump any application. These sharing
and humanistic traits only develop on the "long-term."    (010)

Also, the logic of your statement "the acceptance of an OHS" is flawed.    (011)

The thinking that collaborative knowledge networks must 'accept' an
application to advance or factor itself has contributed to the 60-70%
failure rate for these 'short-term' technology and application deployments.    (012)

OHS is an ongoing practice. It's not something that needs to be 'accepted.'    (013)

As an ongoing practice, success will be achieved in the long-term, and needs
to be continuously encouraged and rewarded to bootstrap the required
behavioral, process and technology portfolio.    (014)

Furthermore, an effective, well-socialized OHS will -accept- the natural
rhythms of human interaction and collaborative cadence while nurturing and
sustaining transparent, highly congenial knowledge ecosystems. This will
only be achieved by encouraging, rewarding and balancing "long-term
planning" with the behavioral, process and technology perspectives.    (015)

Cheers,    (016)
