Transcript: Clientele and professional development How Does Knowledge Create Value for McKinsey and Company ? Tacit Knowledge - context specific, hard to formalise and articulate, in the heads of individuals Explicit Knowledge - easily written down and codified (Gerami 2010) What is Knowledge? a quick success among the firm’s consultants. It offered the consultants a source to identify co-workers. It served as a “yellow pages”. These three systems are part of the knowledge infrastructure at McKinsey and all contributed to the idea of “One Firm.” They were utilized by the consultants in order to gather and share knowledge. a system created to store info on client engagement and it accessible to all members of the firm. The benefits, as we see them, are two fold: 1) organize and store historical data on client projects; 2) provide information on ‘lessons learned’, to be used as a benchmark for future projects. This type of system illustrates how tacit knowledge is transferred to explicit knowledge (Externalizaion). Recruitment was given high importance in McKinsey. The company recruited graduates from top-tier business schools. Before a candidate was selected, he/she was interviewed six to eight times by the partners and principals. Upon joining the firm, entry level business analysts can expect to spend plenty of time learning the basics such as data gathering, modeling, analyzing and preparing reports and etc.; but after two years of toil, opportunities for advancement will present themselves. However, McKinsey is notorious for an aggressive ‘up-or-out policy’, where those that don’t progress leave. This policy leads to intense competition but retain the talent people for company. The McKinsey dicide to create two new career paths for client service support and administrative staff. - The first reaffirmed a path to partnership for practice-dedicated specialists who built credibility with clients and CSTs through their specialized knowledge and its expert application. Their skills would have them in high demand as consultants to teams (CDs) rather than as engagement directors (EDs). - The second new option was the practice management track designed to provide a career progression for practice coordinators, who had a key role in transferring knowledge and in helping practice leaders manage increasingly complex networks. Valuable administrators could also be promoted on this track. No creative solutions Database systems are complex, difficult, and time-consuming to design Substantial hardware and software start-up costs Damage to database affects virtually all applications programs Extensive conversion costs in moving form a file-based system to a database system Initial training required for all programmers and users Client impact committee Knowledge Management Timeline 2. Value of McKinsey's Knowledge is Realised Through Knowledge Management KRD Changing the organisational culture is imperative in fostoring a knowledge based organisation Create a climate that consultants are willing to volunteer their creativity and expertise "Successful knowledge sharing is 90% cultural, 5% tools and 5% magic. All the technology and tools in the world wont make you a knowledge-based organisation if you do not establish a culture that believes in sharing" The disadvantages of McKinsey’s KM : Founded in 1926 by James "Mac" McKinsey. Originally an accounting and engineering advisory firm. Efficiency Experts, Business Doctors. Knowledge management can increase the corporate assets, such as management systems, brand image, customer information and corporate reputation. • Increasing opportunities for innovation, creating a free exchange of ideas and working collaborate to develop and create new knowledge. • More efficient knowledge capture and storage in relation to customers will enable company to build better relationships with customers through deeper understanding of their needs and how to provide the best service to them. (Huey 1993, pg. 72) McKinsey - people-to-people methods Stephen Dull & The Knowledge Resource Directory (Gerami 2010) The objectives of CPDC are replacing the leader-driven knowledge creation and dissemination process with a stewardship model of self-governing practices focused on competence building. - Develop ‘T-shaped’ consultants develop the consultants with deep industry knowledge and substantive specialized expertise McKinsey & Company Benefits Knowledge is intangible, dynamic and difficult to measure Disadvantage One firm policy Thank You For Your Attention. (Gerami 2010) Now ... Information is able to be measured and quantified 3. Critically evaluate the company’s hard knowledge management strategy limiting the value of knowledge by missing out on major pools of tacit knowledge Client service support and administrative McKinsey and Comapny's hiring practices do not promote diversity of consultants (McKinsey and Company 2012) 1. Knowledge is McKinsey's Product VS are there any questions? :) FPIS: Firm Practice

Transcript: Wisdom does not flow like water Plato’s Critique of Pederasty Pederasty Background Symposium Pederasty My Project Pausanias' Speech Pausanias' Speech Two Aphrodites Uranian Heavenly Pandemos Common Text Text Pictures Pictures "Here, Socrates, lie down alongside me, so that by my touching you, I too may enjoy the piece of wisdom that just occurred to you while you were in the porch. It is plain that you found it and have it, for otherwise you would not have come away beforehand." Agathon and Socrates “It would be a good thing, Agathon, if wisdom were the sort of thing that flows from the fuller of us into the emptier, just by our touching one another, as the water in wine cups flows through a wool thread from the fuller to the emptier. For if wisdom too is like that, then I set a high price on my being placed alongside you, for I believe I shall be filled from you with much fair wisdom. My own may turn out to be a sorry sort of wisdom, or disputable like a dream; but your own is brilliant and capable of much development, since it has flashed out so intensely from you while you are young; and yesterday it became conspicuous among more than thirty thousand Greek witnesses." "You are outrageous, Socrates," Agathon said. "A little later you and I will go to court about our wisdom, with Dionysus as judge, but now first attend to dinner." how water flows Principle at play When they do engage in a contest about love Timeline YEAR Alcibiades' Speech Socrates, he claims, is like “those silenuses that sit in the shops of herm sculptors, the ones that craftsman make holding reed pipes or flutes; and if they are split in two and opened up they show they have images of gods within.” (215b) Alcibiades' Speech You, in my opinion,' I said, 'have proved to be the only deserving lover of mine; and it seems to me that you hesitate to mention it to me. Now I am in this state: I believe it is very foolish not to gratify you in this or anything else of mine—my wealth or my friends—that you need; for nothing is more important to d me than that I become the best possible; and I believe that, as far as I am concerned, there is no one more competent than you to be a fellow helper to me in this. So I should be far more ashamed before men of good sense for not gratifying a man like you than I should be before the many and senseless for gratifying you.' Seduction Scene 'Really, my dear Alcibiades, you're no sucker if what you say about me is really true and there is some power in me e through which you could become better. You must see, you know, an impossible beauty in me, a beauty very different from the fairness of form in yourself. So if, in observing my beauty, you are trying to get a share in it and to exchange beauty for beauty, you are intending to get far the better deal. For you are trying to acquire the truth of beautiful things in exchange for the seeming and opinion of beautiful things; and you really have in mind to exchange "gold for bronze." But blessed one do consider better: Without your being aware of it—I may be nothing. Thought, you know, begins to have keen eyesight when the sight of the eyes starts to decline from its peak; and you are still far from that.' Conclusion conclusion If Socrates were to have sex with Alcibiades, he would perpetuate: 1) the idea that people can make each other wise. impact: prevent Alcibiades from realizing his ignorance about wisdom 2) Alcibiades belief that his physical attractiveness is the most important thing about him impact: the belief could harm Alcibiades as he begins to decline from his physical peak, when “Thought begins to have keen eyesight.” (219a) 3) Socrates would be no better than the sophists who cannot acknowledge the ways in which they are ignorant, and thus, risk self-deception. Advantages Advantages to my account: -Fits with the well-known picture of a Socrates who: 1) proclaims his own ignorance. 2) critiques the Sophists for i. both not acknowledging what they do not know ii. exchanging money for wisdom -Makes explicit the way Plato critiques the customs of his time -Throws into question a vision of Socrates as someone who consistently denies bodily urges -Makes clear that the container model is supposed to function in opposition to the image of pregnancy and birth. Accounts of “Plato’s Appropriation of Reproduction” run these two images together.
