Flattening the KM Ecosystem-Motorola

This seems to be the best example yet of why grassroots level efforts to drive KM are better than the top down approach. Toby Redshaw, Corporate Vice President, Corporate IT Strategy, eBusiness & Business Development at Motorola says :

Now we have 2,000 live wikis inside the company and 1,900 blogs….It just happened by itself. We don’t even monitor it, and I’m sure some awful stuff is embedded there.” and “There are 68,000 people in Motorola, and every day 60,000 log onto knowledge management system and do something. I believe that has to be an advantage.”

Dan Bricklin has put up a related podcast featuring Toby Redshaw. Toby says Motorola uses blogging and wiki platforms that come bundled with OpenText. This seems to be the logical way forward for many of the Global 2000 companies-Using “social software” as extensions of existing collaboration and/or content management suites.
