It also addresses practices for transferring such knowledge, before the risks become formal incidents.
APQC Levels of Knowledge Management Maturity Maturity APQC-KMMM Model for Maturity Assessment https://www.apqc.org/knowledge-base/documents/apqcs-levels-knowledge-management-maturity Provides a roadmap for transitioning from an immature knowledge state to a to mature knowledge state by using disciplined approaches that are aligned to strategic business imperatives.
Capability Immaturity Model CIMM Model for Maturity Assessment https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=%22capability+immaturity+model%22&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C31 The Capability Immaturity Model (CIMM) is a methodologythat is intended to act as an anti-pattern for the Capability Maturity Model (CMM). It was developed to facilitate better design of systems (mostly software).
Capability Maturity Model CMM Model for Maturity Assessment https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=%22capability+maturity+model+integration%22&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C31 Invented at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The original methodology that later became the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) model. It was invented to improve software systems quality but has been considered flexible enough to be applicable for other forms of problem solving. (See CMMI for more information.)
Capability Maturity Model Integration CMMI Model for Maturity Assessment https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=%22capability+maturity+model+integration%22&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C31 Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a process level improvement training and appraisal program. Discovered at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and administered by the CMMI Institute, it is a subsidiary of ISACA. It is used by many U.S. DoD and U.S. Government contracts, especially in software development.
Community of Practice CoP Model for Collaboration https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=%22community+of+practice%22+%22knowledge+management%22&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C31 A paradigm that creates communities or groups of stakeholders, sometimes with common knowledge and sometimes with diverse knowledge, in hopes of collaborative interactions that help facilitate the identification and resolution of ideas, requirements, issues and problems.
Data Visualizations NO_DATA Visualization Solution https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=%22Data+visualizations%22+%22knowledge+management%22&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C31 Data Visualizations are visual communications tools that help convey data, information and knowledge via pictures that are derived from data, specific for human learning and understanding. Data Visualizations can be static, such as on paper, or interactive, such as via software where people can interact with the visualizations to explore deeper concepts.
Decision Emergence Model (by Fisher) DEM Model - Group Development Behavioral Model NO_DATA Fisher's model is more communication based. He examined the content of group members interactions (if they agreed, were combative, etc.). This model watches who acts and who responds to those actions. His phases are orientation, conflict, emergence, and reinforcement.
  • Orientation: Groups are unfamiliar and communication is awkward. At this point, groups should pay attention to how people are relating and want to be related to.
  • Conflict: Like other models, this is the point at which healthy debate takes place.
  • Emergence: Social structure becomes set, group members become comfortable with each other and the solutions selected by the group. Discussion reflects people coming together.
  • Reinforcement: Group members fully identify with and support the group in most communication.

Individual Change Process Model (by Kurt Lewin) ICPM Model - Group Development Behavioral Model NO_DATA Kurt Lewin's model of Group Development is regarded as the first attempt to systematically categorize the stages of group development (what he called Group Dynamics). His work describes both personal and group development in three stages:
  1. Stage 1 Unfreezing: The group recognizes their existing group dynamics, discusses them, works through defence mechanisms. The group begins the process of change.
  2. Stage 2 Change: Change happens. Though this stage can experience tremendous confusion and strife. Change is not easy, existing ways of living and working are undergoing change, but there is little clarity about the nature of the change.
  3. Stage 3 Freezing: The end results of the change that is taking place begin to take form. The group achieves clarity. The group and those who make up the group become comfortable with the change. The new ways are accepted and normal.
InfoGraphics NO_DATA Visualization Solution https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=%22Infographics%22+%22knowledge+management%22&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C31 InfoGraphics are visual communications tools that help convey data, information and knowledge via pictures that are derived from data, specific for human learning and understanding. They are a subset of Data Visualization tools. Like other Data Visualizations, they can be static or interactive.

Multiple-Sequences Model (by Marshall Scott Poole) MSM Model - Group Development Behavioral Model NO_DATA Poole's model places decision-making at the center of group dynamics. His decision-making model is based on several variables: task structure, group composition and conflict management. Poole then provides three activity tracks: test, relation and topic, each noting a different state of group development or interaction. Unlike other models, these tracks may occur at any time during the group's operation.
Understanding these communication styles can help break from the rigid definitions of other models and even help interpret them.
  • Task track: This track is focused on group goal and process setting. Like other Group Development methodologies, this is the track where groups discover what they are doing and how they are doing it.
  • Relation track: This track is focused specifically on interpersonal relationships. Groups may, at any time, stop work and just talk to each other as friends, share information about themselves, or go out for dinner. These are important times for any group.
  • Topic track: This track is focused on issues or concerns the group may encounter. These can be collaborative or combative conversations.
  • Breakpoints: Breakpoints are the points where groups switch between tracks. Conversation shifts from one type to another. Breakpoints occur when a group switches from one track to another.

Stages Model (by Tuckman) NO_DATA Model - Group Development Behavioral Model NO_DATA Bruce Tuckman's model is the most recognized. Its stages of Forming , Storming, Norming, Performing and Adjourning have been well documented and followed for decades. One element that makes Tuckman's model so powerful is the last: adjourning, which recognized that group projects often do come to an end. Each stage has various indicators that reveal which stage the group is in.
  • Forming: The new group members are learning about each other and the task at hand. There is little clarity into roles or responsibilities. Indicators of this stage suggest confusion and include: lack of commitment, skepticism, political fighting, and apathy.
  • Storming: The group begins work and struggles to find clarity in the organization and structure of the group. These struggles are emotional and often hurtful. Team members vie for position and status. Indicators of this stage suggest volatility and include: anger, resentment, fighting, information hoarding, sabotage and withdrawl. Storming is inherently unsustainable. Groups who remain in this mode usually fail.
  • Norming: The group stabilizes by recognizing goals, giving them clarity, and establishing how things will be carried out. Indicators of this stage include: tracking performance, retrospectives, innovation, collaboration, and caring.
  • Performing: Groups implement their solutions in the norming process and move forward. Indicators for this stage include: higher morale, sense of accomplishment, group identification and pride in work.
  • Adjourning: The project ends, the group disbands. The group feels the pride of a job well done, but also mourns the loss of a good team. Indicators for this stage are: pride, loss, and the end of the project.
Systems Model (by Tubbs) NO_DATA Model - Group Development Behavioral Model NO_DATA Like other Group Development models, Stewart Tubbs "systems" approach views group development through a series of stages. Tubbs' four stages are:
  • Orientation: The group forms, identifies the problem to be solved, and begin to assess how to solve it.
  • Conflict: Conflict, in this case, does not have to be fighting. In the conflict stage, group members generate, debate and evaluate ideas. Healthy conflict is in the form of vigorous debate and helps avoid groupthink or complacency.
  • Consensus: In the consensus stage, group members compromise, agree on alternatives, and implement.
  • Closure: In this stage, the project is over, and the final product is completed.

The 10 step KM Assessment by David Skyrmes NO_DATA Assessment Tool http://www.skyrme.com/tools/know10.htm A quick 10 step KM Assessment by David Skyrmes. A set of ten questions provides a quick check of where your organization is along ten critical success dimensions. Rate your organization (or part of it) on a score 0 to 10, where 0 is doing nothing at all, and 10 is world-class. We suggest that several people from different groups do this, then come together to discuss and compare.
The Knowledge Sharing Toolkit NO_DATA Toolkit Bundle http://www.kstoolkit.org A knowledge management wiki that contains numerous Knowledge Management resources. It was created, published and maintained by organizations like CGIAR, FAO, KM4Dev, UNDP and UNICEF.
Time, Interaction, and Performance Model (by McGrath) TIP Model - Group Development Behavioral Model NO_DATA McGrath, like Poole, acknowledges that all groups are not created equal. He notes that his four modes are potential but not required forms of activity. Groups may find themselves skipping certain steps and revisiting others. Missing some steps does not hinder success.
  • Mode I: Inception Begining of a project and selection of project goals (goal choice).
  • Mode II: Technical Problem Solving Identification and solution of specific technical issues (means choice).
  • Mode III: Conflict Resolution Identification of and resolution of political issues (policy choice).
  • Mode IV: Execution Completion of the project (goal attainment).
