A Corporate KM system in action based on wiki technologies and blogs

It was refereshing to read in the UK Financial Times Special Report on a 'Focus on the Use of Knowledge Management', 0f 25th January 2006, that the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), one of the biggest UK organisations, has been using wiki technologies and have recently added blogging to their knowledge management suite.

Reading the article, by Kate Mackenzie, it seems to me that Euan Semple, head of knowledge management solutions, for the BBC has got one thing very right. He has provided technologies that encourage more 'natural and spontaneous' communication and information sharing.

This can only lead to increased trust and more natural knowledge creation and sharing.

I was interested to read that blogging made an executive "real in a way that most other executives aren't". That sounds more promising for the future!
