Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, called Project Land (I know, not very creative), there were five people on a project team (four Project Coordinators and a Project Manager). The team was twelve-months-old and their job was to look at speeding up learning within a division of a large (multi-country) business.… Read More

To celebrate our CPA Centre of Excellence Knowledge Management & Learning Organisation project winning an ASAE Power of A Sumit Award, for “making exemplary commitments to creating a stronger America and world and are positive influences in the daily lives of society at large”, we’re going to give you six powerful ways to surface knowledge (for free)!

I have been involved in several rapid-learning projects over the last six months, where IT departments/projects are causing more problems, in terms of impact on Safety, Time, Innovation, Quality and Cost (STIQC), than they are solving. The problems I will speak of are generally being caused by entrenched behaviours, where IT, as a collective, have fallen in love with the solution (e.g. Outlook) and not the problem (e.g. critical Quality Improvement emails being missed on the frontline).

If you are interested in rapid-learning though training, learning and development or Knowledge Management, especially Lessons Learned, you have to be interested in how people acquire knowledge. Ask yourself, what opportunities to improve Safety, Time, Innovation, Quality and Cost (STIQC) are being missed because people are missing the cognitive perspective within their work.

Reporting the value of the knowledge effort is often the number one challenge for the majority of the organisations we work with. This is becoming even more significant with the emergence of new accounting frameworks that ask organisations to report on their human, social and intellectual capital, alongside the more traditional financial and manufactured capitals.

What Our Customers Think

I have been working with David following the London Olympic and Paralympic Games. David is more than just a consultant who demolishes local context and floods the organisation with his own agenda. He is an intelligent and open minded individual who spends time understanding the landscape of the world we work in and builds a strong relationship with the team.

David and the team gave us a new competency framework for the company. The team effectively influenced our senior stakeholders and frontline staff alike. The system they put in place adapts as our conditions change. Strongly recommended for teams that need fast change and evidence-based solutions.

Amongst all the professional development programmes I have attended over the last 20 years this [5-day executive development session] stands out as the most practical, thought-provoking and enlightening of them all…David’s contagious enthusiasm, genuine passion and solid mastery made this an enjoyable, energising experience.

Really enjoyed the content and the atmosphere David creates with the rare combination of great presentation skills, passion, enthusiasm and broad-mindedness – everything resting on a solid and immense pool of knowledge and experience. I didn’t just get a massive “KM” injection, but also with a great set of tools for making sense of a lot of other important phenomena taking place in our organisational environment.
