The Sierras

August 15, 2008

I’m just back from camping in the mountains of California near Lake Tahoe – a great place to re-orient your priorities. We saw redwoods, stars in the night sky, and an eagle battling an osprey for a fish dinner.
So – back to home, and thinking about work to be done. We’re thinking of changing the focus of the book from the 2007 Naturalistic Decision Making Conference to knowledge management. A critical component of the Naturalistic Decision Making framework is the role of expertise in dealing with changing and ambiguous information. Sounds like knowledge management to me…
On a completely different note, I had my annual physical today, and my doctor commented on the bureaucratic morass he found when he moved his small practice to Kaiser Permanente. He said that a book on organizational dynamics gave him some insight in to what was going on – I think I’ll send him Dave’s HBR article.
