What is Knowledge Management?

[otw_shortcode_info_box border_type=”bordered” border_color_class=”otw-aqua-border” border_style=”bordered” shadow=”shadow-outer”]Knowledge Management can be anything that in one way or another facilitates communication, cooperation, and sharing of knowledge within and between organizations.[/otw_shortcode_info_box]

[otw_shortcode_info_box border_type=”border-top-bottom” border_style=”bordered”]Knowledge is both a thing and a capability at the same time in the same way as an electron is simultaneously both a wave and a particle.[/otw_shortcode_info_box]

[otw_shortcode_info_box border_type=”bordered” border_color_class=”otw-black-border” border_style=”dashed”]Every organisation already has an environment in which processes exist to help people create, find, make sense of, and share knowledge. Knowledge management strives to identify and enhance that environment, and to transform it into a culture.[/otw_shortcode_info_box]

[otw_shortcode_info_box border_type=”border-left-right” border_style=”bordered”]§ Knowledge is volunteered, never conscripted
§ People always know more than they can say, and always say more than they can write
§ Most valuable knowledge is known only when it is needed to be known[/otw_shortcode_info_box]

[otw_shortcode_info_box border_type=”bordered” border_color_class=”otw-brown-border” border_style=”bordered”]Leveraging collective wisdom and experience to accelerate innovation and responsiveness[/otw_shortcode_info_box]

[otw_shortcode_info_box border_type=”bordered” border_color_class=”otw-red-border” border_style=”bordered”]In this sense, human, organization and technology together form the three key components of knowledge management. The first component HUMAN is about the promotion and creation of knowledge, skills and competencies of the organization members, which form the carrier of relevant knowledge. The second component ORGANISATION implies the development of a knowledge- and learning friendly environment and culture and creating a framework that will facilitate the management of knowledge resources. the third component TECHNOLOGY deal with the implementation and design of information and communication infrastructures and tools, supporting the knowledge-based processes in an efficient and user-friendly manner.[/otw_shortcode_info_box]
