A closer look at our Learning and Knowledge processes

This chat is largely inspired by Micro-Processes in Learning and KM for the Agile Knowledge Worker a post I just wrote based on several discussions that took place on Twitter during the last months. PKMChat being about Personal Knowledge Management encompass Knowledge lifecycle in general. Our first chat was about learning, acquiring Knowledge. Our second is about sharing it. Week after weeks we will switch from one end of the lifecycle to another while exploring all the channels that could be used: social, formal, writing, videos. Feel free to suggest topics by tweeting to @pkmchat.

Icebreaker: Did you recently change a behaviour or a habit


  • Q1: What are your knowledge and learning processes? When, where, how often do you use them?
  • Q2: Decompose further and list your micro-processes with their intent and context
  • Q3: Which of them would you dream to automate or delegate? why, how, when?
  • Q4: Which of your micro-processes could you plug into habits, routines? why?
  • Q5: How to remember when and how to resume micro-processes with periods of a week or longer?
  • Q6: Which of your micro-processes require motivation, energy, focus or concentration? why?
  • Q7: What is your strategy to organize processes to match your context?
  • Q8: How might micro-processes (chunking tasks too much) be a barrier to effective learning
  • NB: Questions are subject to change without notice.
