Picking up from the idea of art as a metaphor for knowledge management…
Could we use the creation of art to demonstrate the importance of knowledge management? Yes, I think so, I think it might make workshops more enjoyable and lead to better outcomes.
Would doing some right-brain activities possibly help the left-brain do its job? Probably, it seemed well accepted at the conference that both right-brain and left-brain are necessary for innovation, i.e. the diverge/converge cycle.
What shape all of this takes in the Knowledge Management Consulting I do remains to be seen, but I am quite excited by the possibilities.
P.S. two last things from MindCamp:
- I met Dimis Michaelides of “The Art of Innovation” there and loved the workshop and simulation he did.
- I also met Whitney Ferre of Creatively Fit and loved the workshops that she did as well as the time I spent talking with her outside of the formal sessions
Whether either of them know it they provided pieces to the puzzle for me to discover the intersection of art and knowledge management, thank you both of you!
