Open University MBA: Managing Knowledge (1999-2002)

The Open University Business School launched the world’s first MBA level course on the red hot topic of Managing Knowledge in 1999 [archive page]. Joining this pioneering, multidisciplinary, distance learning team, I contributed:

  • Knowledge Technologies in Context (Course Unit): Conceptual foundations for the relationships between knowledge forms and technologies.

  • The Cost of Knowledge (Course Unit): What are the costs of obtaining information and turning it into useful knowledge? Put this into practice in a collaborative sensemaking exercise in an internet team.

  • Sensemaking in an Internet Team (Assignment): A novel internet-based assignment to reflect on the sensemaking and team processes involved in analyzing diverse information resources on the Web.

  • Managing Knowledge: An Essential Reader which brought together the key readings for the MBA. [chapter eprint]
