MINI-WORKSHOP: RADICAL KM, “CREATIVITY: THE MISSING PIECE OF THE KM PUZZLE
Radical Knowledge Management advocates that creativity, specifically arts-based interventions, is the missing piece of the KM puzzle. Most people treat KM like it is a wired computer network: they can see all the bits and pieces (documents and repositories are the servers, cables, and desktop computers) but the real value in in going wireless–tablets, phones, and laptops and that is Radical KM; creativity is like wifi. Creativity, like going wireless, allows people the flexibility of looking at the world from someplace different, it enables innovation, and challenging the status quo.
