Suffering from email overload?

Spending too much time finding information you need?

Annoyed by the fact you may be reinventing the wheel a little all too often?

Stuck in old habits and interested in new ways of working?

Want to work more smartly and get more out of your time?

  1. True Michelle! KM is definitely more fun together! And it’s also about keeping that spark to keep curious and plugged in. Fun is (or certainly can be) a big multiplier in good practices of organisations😉

  2. Hopefully we can all incorporate some KM into our work profiles as we can’t do it alone and its more fun together🙂

  3. Talking about ‘jetzt’ I really have to work more on the ‘jetzt antworten’ on my blog😉
    Thank you for your comment Joe, and yes there is really some commanding tone to the word NOW, perhaps even more in English than in German (to my ears).
    Glad the title worked, hope the content worked too. Thank you for dropping a few lines of feedback, it’s so rare these days and that’s also about very much being in the ‘now’.
    Keep now-ism up!

  4. When I first went to Germany, I crammed the language for 2 weeks prior–all the notice I’d had. I played with the language — reading some, speaking less. But playing. And I noticed all over the place was this one word I couldn’t place. Jetzt. All over the place in Germany: Jetzt, jetzt, jetzt. Finally took a moment to look it up — now! Do this NOW! Your title struck me that way. English and German – very commanding.
    It also recalls Ted Nelson’s Computer Lib | Dream Machines: You Can and Muster Understand Computers NOW.
