I'm a friend of Lilia Efimova and have been involved in KM for some 10 years now,
It seems to me a good hook for all of this is how we as individuals work in the networked era, we have to know the methods of knowledge sharing (what seems to work and what seems not to work) and also when personal problem solving (reflection) is better, and when collective debating is better.
We see more and more here in industry our learning professionals building modules helping our people discuss deviate and try out these KM processes - we have a lot to improve on with these modules, but we do recognise the skills to be a savvy operator in the 21st century are subtly different from those needed in the 20th. We are lucky as we are building from a case where by and large we make KM work collectively, and have a log standing commitment to an individual learning program within Shell. We also have eager beavers on the management teams and in the workforce, plus teams who can deliver effective KM.
The question is for me if the personal effectiveness definition has some merit how and what processes techniques etc can be utilised. Watching how individuals operate within our KM syatems(albeit we don't call them KM - but that debate is not for here) is always highly instructive (and I agree there with Jim McGee on getting the roots right and the rest can come later), we see a whole variety of personal styles techniques and preferences all of which work for that individual. A menu option of proven ideas (pick n mix for those brits amongst us) seems better than a rigid definition.
It also strikes me it would be dangerous for those who tried collective KM and failed to suddenly try personal KM, it seems to me one should lead eventually to encompass the other, as both are needed to sit together to truly add €'s to your company
Looking forward to listening in and joining occasionally the debate
