Happy Holidays to All!
During the next several posts I would like to examine the effect the Obama presidential campaign, cabinet selections, and governing strategy is being shaped by the principles, practices, and technology of Knowledge Management (KM). I am referring to this as “The Obama Affect”. This is the first time in the history of American politics that someone has leveraged KM in a political campaign and has ultimately changed how politicians will be elected. KM has many facets. Among its many facets, KM includes knowledge acquisition, collaboration, knowledge transfer/sharing, and the technology and strategy to effectively leverage knowledge to shape decisions.
The Obama Team has instituted a push strategy executing a knowledge-sharing policy that includes disseminating information about the campaign, transition team, cabinet selections, and future policies via email, mobile devices, and the Internet. As the Obama Team continues to add cabinet positions and shape their policy decisions the following links provide some insight into their strategy:
A good KM strategy Includes:
Valuation of Knowledge Assets (People, Process and Technology)
Conducting Knowledge Audit

We will examine each aspect of the Obama KM Strategy and I welcome your comments and suggestions.
