What is knowledge management

Post by Tengku Ira on Mon Oct 05, 2015 6:31 pm

Hye guys.. as this is our first forum about knowledge management, i would like to share about what is knowledge management is. Actually i try to attached the link of km journal, unfortunately this forum administration is not working well.
"New members are not allowed to post external links or email for 7 days.Please contact the forum administration for more information"

Some sharing Smile
Knowledge management as a business activity with two primary aspects:
 1:   Treating the knowledge component of business activities as an explicit concern of business
        reflected in strategy, policy, and practice at all levels of the organization.
 2:    Making a direct connection between an organization’s intellectual assets — both explicit
        [recorded] and tacit [personal know-how] — and positive business results.

In practice, knowledge management often encompasses identifying and mapping intellectual assets
within the organization, generating new knowledge for competitive advantage within the
organization, making vast amounts of corporate information accessible, sharing of best practices,
and technology that enables all of the above — including groupware and intranets.

hi tengku ira, i also find some journal that defining what is knowledge management.

Knowledge management is a collaborative and integrated approach to the creation, capture,
organization, access, and use of an enterprise ’ s intellectual assets. ( Grey 1996).

Knowledge management is the process by which we manage human centered assets that the function of knowledge management is to guard and grow knowledge owned by individuals, and where possible, transfer the asset into a form where it can be more readily shared by other employees in the company. ( Brooking 1999).

This is easier said than done because instituting a knowledge management program requires many changes and support at all levels of the organization. Furthermore, there are
different forms of knowledge to contend with and understand.

if you guys want to know, Knowledge can be tacit or explicit, which requires different strategies to capture each type. Another challenge is to distill the practice of knowledge management into one neat concept.

Hi and hello everyone. My name is Wan Amirul Amsyar bin Wan Ahmad Jailani. I think all of you already know me Very Happy . So, welcome to "Knowledge To The Moon"!. Oh by the way, I would like to thank to Sir Tengku Adrian for providing us the support and assistance in this forum, Danial Aiman for the creation of this forum, the moderator for this topic, and all fellow groupmates.

As for now I already did some research on what is Knowledge Management is all about. Basically, from my own perspective is efficient handling of information and resources within a commercial organization. Cool

From the article that i found in a journal called "Knowledge Management" by Sir Frances Bacon, Knowledge management is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, capturing, evaluating, retrieving, and sharing all of an enterprise's information assets. These assets may include databases, documents, policies, procedures, and previously un-captured expertise and experience in individual workers. Very Happy

Thank you Shafiqa for sharing us some of the characterization of Knowledge Management. To add some useful information, there are Explicit, Implicit and Tacit Knowledge.

Explicit: information or knowledge that is set out in tangible form.

Implicit: information or knowledge that is not set out in tangible form but could be made explicit.

Tacit: information or knowledge that one would have extreme difficulty operationally setting out in tangible form. bounce

I agree with you guys

I think that knowledge management prevents staff from constantly reinventing the wheel, provides a baseline for progress measurement, reduces the burden on expert attrition, makes visual thinking tangible, and manages effectively large volumes of information to help employees serve their clients better and faster.



Being a fundamental business enabler, knowledge management will help organisations:

1.Protect their intellectual capital
2.Focus on their most important assets: their human capital
3.Re-orient their culture by opting for an optimal knowledge sharing strategy
4.Link people to people by setting up collaborative methods
