Knowledge Managers: Who They Are and What They Do - James McKeen and D Sandy Staples

Knowledge Managers: Who They Are and What They Do - James McKeen and D Sandy Staples | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Findings of a survey to reveal the characteristics of knowledge managers and knowledge management initiatives, primarily from US and Canadian organizations

 

"Abstract: Knowledge management (the process) and knowledge managers (the people) are recent organizational phenomena. The latter (the knowledge managers) are those key individuals charged with the task of making the former (knowledge management) successful. Due to the recent emergence of these organizational initiatives, a study of knowledge managers – who they are and what they do – was thought to be instructive and revealing as well as being sufficiently current to enable organizations to either adopt or adapt their knowledge management strategy. A survey to reveal the characteristics of knowledge managers as well as knowledge management initiatives was designed and distributed to practicing knowledge managers, primarily from US and Canadian organizations. This chapter, based on the analysis of 41 completed questionnaires, reveals the backgrounds, goals, ambitions, initiatives and challenges as self-assessed by these individuals. By pulling this information together, a rofile of a “typical” knowledge manager is presented. The question that remains to be asked is “Are these the most appropriate individuals to lead the KM charge”?

A snapshot of what it is to be a knowledge manager and the role of knowledge managers in organisations based on a questionnaire.  Discusses progress made by organisations in terms of KM implementation and success (compared with the results from an earlier study).

 

Quote:

'Knowledge management can be interpreted as a religion. It has its well-known disciples and followers. It has recognized dogma not the least of which are the competing mantras of "KM as technology" vs

“KM as people”.

The days of knowledge management are over. We need knowledge architects | DZone

The days of knowledge management are over. We need knowledge architects | DZone | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
If you want to find one of the most vague, misunderstood, but critical roles in an enterprise it’s probably in a division called “knowledge management...(RT @MeghanMBiro: The days of knowledge management are over. Design thinking is at the heart of this “nudge” – a focus on not just “improving” the customer experience for the sake of satisfaction, loyalty, and revenue, but to actually influence behavior in a certain way to maximize those returns through often hidden or subtle ways. To go back to our original topic – knowledge management – we’d do better call it knowledge architecture and focus on the design of the ecosystem and processes in which it all happens as one big strategic nudge toward a better world. Not only does knowledge architecture sound better (and not bring up bad memories), it’s also more accurate – it conveys how skills and topics like design, strategic planning, behavior, economics, and psychology all fit into this very strategic role.

Knowledge Architecture is the new terminology to use!

KM may die, but I think some people still love it. The notion of knowledge architecture is nice, though.
