The Knowledge Inventory: You Can’t Make A Bet Without Odds

by Dan Robles on July 22, 2010

In order to create anything useful, there must be an inventory of parts, a bill of materials, or an accounting system with assets on one column and liabilities (deficiencies) in the other column.

The purpose of this video is to demonstrate how a knowledge inventory should be structured so that useful things can be built.

  • The knowledge inventory must be machine enabled
  • The knowledge inventory must be vetted among peers on a bell curve
  • Yes, I know Dewey is archaic, however, a cascading decimal system facilitates code
  • The objective is to be able to predict the likelihood that a collection of knowledge assets can execute a business objective and thereby “Capitalized and Securitized”

The knowledge inventory is the most important part of Social Capitalism. It is also the piece that will most challenge people to think outside the resume system regarding about how we organize ourselves in on-line and local communities.

Have you thought of adapting this for organizations in assessing their internal talent? a strenths perspective on inividual talent and broader view of company assets vs. Individual Competency’s?

Yes, in fact it was developed from such programs. Beginning in 1994-1996, I was involved with the Mutual Recognition of Engineering professionals under NAFTA – this was the first attempt to treat knowledge like a financial instrument crossing international boarders. As such, a means for a whole country to articulate individual talent. The work was further developed inside a large company in the Seattle area. I can’t even begin to tell you how distilled the current version is from the complexity of preceding developments. Thanks for the question. Let me know if you have any ideas.
