RCTs – serendipity + conversation – what’s not to like?

I’ve written before about RCTs.  They combine two things I feel often go missing in formalised KM systems – conversation and serendipity.  If you are interested in trying them out in your organisation, but are in need of a little more info and some reassurance from those who’ve already tried them out – here is some more reading for you:

“How Michael and I got RCTs going at Nesta”

Health Education North West – “Fancy a brew?”

“Lunch Roulette”

RCTs in government


And a video from the Red Cross introducing the idea to their volunteers.


Have you tried them out? I’d love to hear in the comments section how it went.

And do you want to give them a go but want someone to help you? If so, email me.

Alternatively, RCTs are one of the KM Projects in my new textbook – “Practical Projects”

  1. By the way: Ride/Car Sharing may also be a great opportunity for exchange.

  2. Yes, great idea, thanks.

  4. If you are interested in learning more about RCTs, I’ve got a training and knowledge-sharing event in March with Michael Soto, co-creator of the RCTs at Nesta speaking about his experiences by video link from USA.
