Blogs As KM Tools: The Lucent Experience

Michael Angeles, Information Specialist at Lucent Technologies, has made available for download a very informative set of slides he’s prepared discussing Lucent’s experience integrating Weblogs into their overall intranet/knowledge-management system. He gives a walk-through of relevant products and technologies, and highlights the benefits from the corporate perspective of integrating such tools into an overall KM strategy: namely, an increase in casual knowledge-gathering, an improvement in knowledge-based social networking, and opportunities for people to “free ride” off the previously captured work of others rather than having to reinvent the wheel every time. This is a very useful place to start for anyone who’s wondering how to apply blog tools to smaller, “behind-the-firewall” communities. [Seen on Seb’s Open Research]

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
