HP: Ode to Knowledge Management

by on March 8, 2010

“If only HP knew what HP knows, we would be three times more productive.”– Lew Platt, Former CEO of HP

Gina Spadoni tipped me off to this great quote via her tweet stream the other day. As it turns out, it’s taken from a Mashable piece entitled, “How Companies are Using Social Media to Make Better Decisions.” Good read.  Here’s a taste:

As collaborative technologies gain traction, the future of enterprise will include internal social networks, prediction markets, and idea management platforms.  In this vision, social networks will be the default location for a collaborative employee community. Think of it as a wide and deep pool of employee knowledge and ideas.

Prediction markets will then aggregate this knowledge to produce actionable, people-powered forecasts. The result is an ultra-rich information source that will lay the foundation for smarter, better-informed company decisions. We are already seeing the first movement towards this integrated vision with products like 12sprints from SAP.

The ability to manage and profit from employee knowledge through social networks, idea funnels, and prediction markets will be the defining competitive advantage for this decade.  Employees will have a voice and enterprises will truly leverage their most valuable assets.
