Finally got a chance to look at the work you, and I guess others, have done to
flesh out the OHS and DKR issue, per your letter today. I support your idea to
ground "knowledge" in the realm of human experience, including the notion that
learning and wisdom are deliverables of the overall exercise, as shown at....
I apologize for not taking the time to comment in detail. These resources
provide ample opportunity to comment on Doug's OHS Launch Plan, per his request
on 001025 for linking to relevant information. You can demonstrate how to
synthesize current standards in your DKR specs, with Doug's new information, in
a way that grows new knowledge, along the bootstrapping model.
Email, phone calls, meetings, climbing a mountain, are all sources of
information. How do we get this stuff into the DKR? I've taken to calling this
effort building a culture of knowledge that moves up a notch on the cognitive
scale from current IT practice. This is one of the paradigm shifts that is
foundational to getting KM going.
