Two great resources on KM tools and techniques
I just wanted to quickly share a couple of great resources on knowledge management tools and techniques relating to development.
Firstly the Knowledge Sharing toolkit developed by FAO, CGIAR and the KM4Dev community is a terrific resource on different knowledge sharing tools and methods in wiki format. I’m pleased to share the news that UNICEF has now joined the toolkit as a sponsoring organization.
This means that we have agreed to help maintain the site, including helping to write and edit content, and supporting the great work of the developers and participants in developing and improving the site. It also means that we plan to use it as one of our main tools to help support Knowledge Sharing in UNICEF (Why reinvent the wheel when someone else has already done it – instead we can help in our own small way to make a better wheel)
The toolkit has been developed as a public wiki which means that it is open to anyone to view, and can be edited by anyone who has joined the site as a member.
As a bonus, I also just found this excellent resource recently published by IFAD and IDRC “Knowledge Sharing methods and tools a facilitators guide” that gives detailed tips on how to facilitate different types of knowledge sharing meetings and events.
