Knowledge management principles for natural resources management

Last month, we shared some data management principles for natural resources management. This month, we look at some KM principles from the Regional Knowledge Resource Kit - a wiki resource for managing information and knowledge for natural resource management in Australia. Also produced by Land & Water Australia, the principles they suggest are:
  • Share what you know and help others learn.
  • Has this been done before? Don’t reinvent the wheel!
  • Collaboration.
  • Synthesis - transfer knowledge concisely rather than overloading your audience.
  • Learning.
  • Team work.
  • Innovation / creativity.
  • Use networks of expertise.
  • Promote knowledge champions.
  • Language - make sure it is appropriate to the audience.
  • Knowledge is volunteered, never conscripted.
  • We know more than we can say, and we say more than we can write down.
  • We only know what we know when we need to know it.
  • Being well connected. The Paul Revere story provides a good example why.
