As of today I have become more active in the outside world evangelizing (and learning about others who are evangelizing) Enterprise 2.0. I have been working within my company for close to a year and have achieved some amount of success, but I’ve been reluctant to share what I’ve been doing outside the firewall because of the nature of our business (Aerospace, with heavy emphasis on export-controlled info and knowledge). I have also been somewhat consumed with finishing a Masters degree in Knowledge Management, a field I have been practicing for over a decade. So . . . combined with the imminent completion of that degree, and a newfound desire to learn from others despite the possible discomfort it may at times cause me, I am going to plunge in and root about for the nuggets I need to bring my company up-to-speed.
It’s now or never. Onward and upward . . . and all those aphorisms and cliches that indicate one is moving out on a long-held desire. I am hopeful I can engage many others in this journey. I have much to learn and, perhaps, a little bit to share as well. The job so far has been full of roadblocks and sidetracks, but there is an ever increasing number of people (even in management) who can see the writing on the wall. I’m hopeful as hell!
