RT @laserfiche: "If you don’t capture content, you’re losing half the value of the system," says @BillIves. http://t.co/9oImGlIOrl #ECM #documentmanagement
We sat down with Bill Ives, a partner with the Merced Group, who’s been working in the field of knowledge management since the 1980s, including for Accenture, and who has written the blog Portals and KM for ten years.
Where do you see knowledge management going?
Knowledge management is giving people the knowledge/information/wisdom/content/whatever that they need to do their job, and giving it to them while they’re doing their job. Training is what you do before you start your job; knowledge management is what supports you while you’re doing your job. It’s a very simple distinction. It’s archiving and creating this information in an accessible way so everyone else can benefit. Knowledge is one of the assets of a company that gets better, instead of declines, the more you use it.
