A phrase that stood out to me last night in our sync session was building collective knowledge among the cohort. I’m not sure our cadre fully grasps this concept and objective as one of the key outcomes of the program. It seems that each of us is stuck in doing all the work ourselves in isolation. Yet, we are hoping to pick up a few ideas in this program of how we might facilitate collective and collaborative knowledge sharing and building within our organizations. Seems to me like we would want to practice what we preach. Informing our decisions through the review of research and other types of literature was also enlightening. To have greater understanding and knowledge of the particular actions we propose to take is worth the time and effort. To take a “good idea” and vet it so we avoid “trial and error” seems logical to me.
