The community built around the KM Impact Challenge continues to thrive and the KMIC team is working diligently to set the stage for the next steps for this initiative. One of the immediate next steps will be for the team to work with the case story authors to publish the top case stories and circulate them to a wider audience before the end of the year. We invite you to view the video above where Stacey Young of USAID reflects on the complexity of measuring the impact of Knowledge Management activities and discusses some of the lessons learned from the KM Impact Challenge.
We have also started a series of video notes from members of the KMIC Technical Advisory Group and other KM practitioners. The first two in the series are from Nancy White of Full Circle Associates and Julius Nyangaga of the International Livestock Research Institute.
Nancy White discusses various aspects of strengthening communities of practice (CoPs), as well as mechanisms to measure their effectiveness and improve our understanding of how people are participating in CoPs. Julius Nyangaga discusses his experience with projects that use Outcome Mapping to measure knowledge sharing among diverse stakeholders and shares his reflections on how OM can be used to capture knowledge uptake.

Over the next few months we will be posting more video notes from various KM practitioners from around the world and keep you updated on our activities. Please keep sending us your feedback, ideas and challenges.
