How to run a Knowledge cafe

  1. 1. Knowledge Cafe Information Governance Dealing with challenges in the information space David Williams & Vladimir Videnovic Institute of Information Management 19 November 2013
  2. 2. IIM’s Information Governance Community of Practice A self-directed forum, which continuously provides our members and partners with an informal and interactive exchange of ideas, concepts and views about better practice in information governance. We discuss the challenges, opportunities, leading practices and roles required to address Information Governance issues in organisations today.
  3. 3. Objective for today 1. Experience how a knowledge café works 2. Explore some IM and data governance issues 3. Take the opportunity to meet some people you have not met before
  4. 4. Café Conversation What is the role of conversation in our organisations? Is it important and how do we encourage more of it?
  5. 5. What is a Knowledge Café? A knowledge café brings a group of people together to have an open, creative conversation on a topic of mutual interest to surface their collective knowledge, to share ideas and to gain a deeper understanding of the issues involved. Ultimately leading to action in the form of better decision making and innovation, and thus tangible business outcomes.
  6. 6. Why a cafe? • Unstructured • Informal • Fun • Relaxing • Creative • Social • Collaborative • Non threatening • Time-bounded
  7. 7. Knowledge “A body of understanding and skills that is constructed by people and increased through interaction with other people and with information.” AS 5037 - 2005 7
  8. 8. Different forms of Knowledge Cafés Many forms of café adapted to different purposes: • World Café (Elizabeth Lank, early 90s) – global World Café community of practice. • Gurteen Knowledge Café • Innovation Café • After Action Reviews (AARs) • Post Implementation Reviews • Peer-assists
  9. 9. What’s in it for me? • The Café can tease out a greater level of insight of ourselves than we are conscious of • You hear yourself say things in Café conversations that you did not know that you knew • It crystallises our knowledge – New ideas are sparked – Fresh perspectives emerge ... • With increased observation and reflection comes understanding – this paves the way for change • The opportunity to ‘emerge a slightly different person’ Theodore Zeldin
  10. 10. What's the process? 1. introduce the Knowledge Café and the theme 2. Purpose of the Knowledge Café is made clear 3. Pose the challenge and table topics 4. Form into small groups of 4 or 5 to discuss the subject for 10 mins for each round. 5. Change tables 1,2 or 3 times 6. The group re-assembles for an exchange of ideas
  11. 11. Principles • Clarify the purpose • Create a hospitable space • Explore questions that matter • Encourage everyone’s contribution • Connect diverse conversations • Listen for insights and share discoveries
  12. 12. Knowledge Café Etiquette • To listen more than speak • Contribute your thinking • Speak your mind and heart • Listen for insights and deeper questions • Link and connect ideas • Play, doodle, draw! Have fun! • See different views not as adversarial but as perspectives from which we learn • Welcome differences and withhold judgment • To avoid being too politically correct
  13. 13. • All about relaxed, non-threatening, open conversation • No one is forced to do anything • Everyone is equal • No table leaders • No reporting back • Sharing circle: individual summary at end • No overall summarization or attempt to reach consensus • No capture on flip-charts • Outcome: what people take away in their heads Gurteen K Café rules
  14. 14. How does it work 1. Have a 5 min initial round of conversation 2. Ask one person to remain at the table as the "host“ 3. The others serve as travelers or "ambassadors of meaning." The travelers carry key ideas, themes, and questions into their new conversations. 4. The table host welcomes the new guests to link and connect ideas coming from their previous table conversations 5. Listen and build on the previous contributions. 6. Rotate again
  15. 15. Question Can good Information Governance help us deal with complexity?
  16. 16. Red Team Why is data quality management (incl MDM) an unsustainable strategy? Blue Team How could we (should we) involve our suppliers and customers in the governance of our IM? Where are the differences in how we manage our structured and non- structured information? Green Team Table Topics What did you get most out of the conference today? Yellow Team
  17. 17. Observations Conversations Questions

  19. 19. Summary • Knowledge Café is a simple process – But a lot to learn to run them well • Powerful learning & creativity tool • Can be adapted to varying situations • Low cost to run • Focus on dialogue not debate • Business is a conversation
