Human behaviour is a key concept to be understood when sharing knowledge and creating an environment where knowledge is openly shared. This session will explore some of the behaviours that enhance knowledge sharing using an innovative techniques known as the Organizational Zoo. This was developed by Arthur Shelley of Intelligent Answers and uses animal metaphor to understand human behaviours. The technique is a safe and fun way to look at our own behaviours in particular contexts, and to enable us to make some shifts and changes where necessary.

  1. A Youtube video that help to remind us of the “Organizational zoo” and what it is about, from the author of the metaphor. Arthur Shelley.

    During the HKKMS session, it definitely became obvious that the idea of animal metaphors opens up the conversation and discussion about behaviours in a non threatening way.
