Big GrinSomething to laugh: my favorite comic strip of the weekabout matrix management

Working in matrix management makes it easier to hide and find excuses, especially when working for multiple projects and having multiple bosses. Wally of course is the one who knows how to get the best out of it.

Something to talk about: my favorite quote of the weekabout blogging

I need this space to work out what I know and what I don’t.

~ IBMer working for IBM Marketing about her IBM blog. ~

Why blogging ? There are many good reasons like

… to do “thinking writing”

… to gain a different view into a company or organization, other than what you can read on their official web pages

… to come up with a public diary

… to provide a more “persistent” form of communication and knowledge

… simply because you become addicted to it ?

… to empower yourself and make the world smaller and all of us smarter

… as your own personal memory extension

… to leave something in the world and web, some evidence that you have been there

A lot of good reasons, but I really like the way this IBMer has put it: to find out what she knows and what she doesn’t. Isn’t that the core principle behind knowledge management ?
