What does PKM stand for? Personal Knowledge Management. For me (Bruno Winck) #PKM is essentialy #KM for teams of one. It could be a sole entrepreneur, an expert within an organisation a passionate or a life long learner. It shares most of the activities of Knowledge Management (KM): capturing, developing, sharing, and effectively using knowledge but it’s the Knowledge residing in one’s brain instead of organisational knowledge. For this reason learning is added to the mix as well as relating, building from experience at personal level. While KM is mostly about what happen inside the organization, PKM will be largely concerned by how we learn from others and how, why, with whom we share. Learning is no more a defined time at the beginning of life. It’s becoming a life long continous experience taking many forms. The time between discoveries, innovations is now so short that the process should be very agile, fast and efficient. Learning even in organization is becoming more and mor individualized and tend to become self managed. For all these reason we are all concerned by gaining this competency to guide our learnings and share knowledge more efficiently and replicate experiences. It will impact our career, our leardership as well as our happiness. This is what this chat is about. Weekly topics will explore PKM in relation to Social Media, MOOCs, reading, writing, networking, KM, software. Check our Lab where we look for new topics: The PKMChatLab

This chat starts where our pre-last chat ended

This chat gets back a little deeper in how to connect dots. Dots are ideas, concepts we learn. This chat was inspired by a discussion toward the end of The Marketing Seminar. The idea from one of coach was that we have now all the elements, the dots but it’s left to us to connect them to build our own project. It’s not publicly accessible but it referred to a *very* short blog post by Seth Godin on same topic.
Connecting dots (or collecting dots)
and to a much longer podcast episode of Akimbo, the podcast of Seth Godin: https://www.akimbo.me/blog/s-3-e-10-connect-the-dotsq-a-about-stop-stealing-dreams The podcast was mostly about the importance to teach kids to connect dots more than to collect and accumulate dots. Great thinking but at no point the question of how to connect dots came out. Since #PKMChat are curious and questioning people I thought it would be a great occasion to search for answers in our own experience and share how we do. While the original topic was about kids, students, college, teachers it’s a mental activity perfectly valid for us constant learners seeking thinking performance.

Serie of Topics imagined after the epic failure of last chat on touchpoint. Topic didn’t drag a massive audience and was not well introduced to make easy to join). After a private conversation with sole participant @srjf, I realized it has to be chunk in multiple small steps.
Now we have ideas from our readings, watching videos and listening to podcasts. We connected those ideas as we saw that’s it’s more powerful than keeping them in lists.

As we will realize in the first questions connections are great but can quickly be overwhelming. The key is to keep them minimal. No need to connect things which are already connected by a nearby , intermediate idea. Even minimal, the best is to arrange our ideas in structures. Not all ideas fit in structures but having some of them arranged like this will bring clarity. Structures are also the step before identifying models.

In the visual thinking world, structure are layouts. We have more freedom than in text, we have also more visual metaphors.
