Many member firms of the KA Connect community are investing in R+D. If you haven’t seen it, ARCHITECT Magazine has been running an annual R+D awards program for the last eight years. Here’s a short summary of the program:

“To celebrate the building technologies that are revolutionizing the process and product of architecture, ARCHITECT magazine announces its eighth annual R+D Awards program. The awards honor innovative design and systems at every scale—from entire buildings to building systems, discrete products and materials, and digital tools such as software, cloud-based platforms, and mobile apps. The R+D Awards welcome entries of all types to encourage the broadest possible dialogue among architects, engineers, manufacturers, researchers, students, and designers of all disciplines.”

More information about the award program’s rules and regulations and past award winners is available on the ARCHITECT site.

Good luck!

Introducing KA Connect Books

KA Connect Books

We talk about books quite a bit in the KA Connect community, both online and at our conferences. The team at Knowledge Architecture is constantly asked for book recommendations on a variety of topics—from knowledge management to research to thought leadership.

I have been wanting to put together a KA Connect book list for a while now. Last week, one of our clients posted a request for a list of knowledge management books in our client community, which was the final nudge I needed. I went through my bookshelf, my Kindle, old blog posts and presentations, as well as KA Connect talks and LinkedIn Group discussions to pull together version 1.0 of KA Connect Books, which you can find here:

http://www.ka-connect.com/books.php

Some of the books in this list are new. Some are old. Some are AEC-specific. Others are more general in nature. The unifying factor of the collection is that these are books we have read over and over. Books we use in our practice. Books we recommend again and again.

I hope you enjoy them.

Does your company actually need data visualization?

Great article on the HBR blog this week about data visualization by KA Connect member Bill Shander. My takeaway from the article is that all companies could benefit from data visualization, but some need it more than others.

In Bill’s words, “companies selling complex solutions to complex problems should embrace the power of data visualization.”

What do you think? Could your firm benefit from data visualization? How so?
