Knowledge is personal

  1. Limited to a person. If you bend over sideways, knowledge tends not to run out of your ear as the by-product of an intellectual ear infection.
  2. Limited in subject matter. Some people seem to know everything about everything, but omniscience is usually attributed to a single divine being. Humans spend their whole lives accumulating knowledge. We tend to know a lot about a little, and a little about a lot of things.
  3. Based on your own experience. It’s rare to run into someone who’s actually reviewed every bit of new information on its merits. You live life, bumping into random facts, and construct an image of what the world is like.

Knowledge Management in Theory and Practice

Knowledge Management in Theory and Practice | Review of Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
The ability to manage knowledge has become increasingly important in today's knowledge economy. Knowledge is considered a valuable commodity, embedded in products and in the tacit knowledge of highly mobile individual employees. Knowledge management (KM) represents a deliberate and systematic approach to cultivating and sharing an organization's knowledge base. It is a highly multidisciplinary field that encompasses both information technology and intellectual capital. This textbook and professional reference offers a comprehensive overview of the field of KM, providing both a substantive theoretical grounding and a pragmatic approach to applying key concepts. Drawing on ideas, tools, and techniques from such disciplines as sociology, cognitive science, organizational behavior, and information science, the text describes KM theory and practice at the individual, community, and organizational levels. It offers illuminating case studies and vignettes from companies including IBM, Xerox, British Telecommunications, JP Morgan Chase, and Nokia. This second edition has been updated and revised throughout. New material has been added on the information and library science perspectives, taxonomies and knowledge classification, the media richness of the knowledge-sharing channel, e-learning, social networking in KM contexts, strategy tools, results-based outcome assessments, knowledge continuity and organizational learning models, KM job descriptions, copyleft and Creative Commons, and other topics. New case studies and vignettes have been added; and the references and glossary have been updated and expanded.

Another interesting point about knowledge management in this Gartner blog. Knowledge is described as “free flowing”. Using social medial for KM, allows the freedom of the individual to express their knowledge in a way that makes sense to them.

Knowledge management is what the company tells me I need to know based on what they think is important.

Social media is how my peers show me what they think is important based on their experience in a way that I can judge for myself

Ken Keiser's curator insight, June 10, 2013 5:13 PM

As a knowledge manager and a user of social media, I can appreciate the distinction that this article makes--if only to start a discussion between the appropriate roles each might play in an organization. We have had success in both structured and social formats, but we have also experienced deadwood, duplication, and dispersal in both due to the numerous personnel and purposes our organization has included in the creation and use of knowledge and information. It is the challenge of our organization to best use each location appropriately over time and as knowledge grows and matures, and we have the same issue with our personnel. Sharing is one thing, but we also have the challenges of individual preferences and also the priorities people bring to the creation, use, and maintenance of information. I will use this article as the basis of some brainstorming our organization will conduct in order to understand whether we are doing all that we can as best we can. Thanks for this insight.

Melanie Turner's curator insight, September 21, 2015 3:45 PM

Is social media just another kind of knowledge management, or is it something altogether different?

Knowledge Management Primer

Knowledge Management Primer | Review of Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
The discipline of Knowledge Management (KM) is rapidly becoming established as an essential course or module in both information systems and management programs around the world. Many KM texts pitch theoretical issues at too technical or high a level, or presenting a only a theoretical prescriptive treatment of knowledge or KM modeling problems. The Knowledge Management Primer provides students with an essential understanding of KM approaches by examining the purpose and nature of its key components. The book demystifies the KM field by explaining in a precise, accessible manner the key concepts of KM tools, strategies, and techniques, and their benefits to contemporary organizations. Readers will find this book filled with approaches to managing and developing KM that are underpinned by theory and research, are integrative in nature, and address softer approaches in manifesting and recognizing knowledge.

Advice for someone new to Knowledge Management - Dr Bonnie Cheuk

Advice for someone new to Knowledge Management - Dr Bonnie Cheuk | Review of Knowledge Management | Scoop.it


"My friend, if you stay focus on the business goals and understand what is high up on your management team's radar, you can make Knowledge Management whatever you want it to be. By the way, avoid using the term "knowledge management",  just talk about how best to connect, collaborate and share knowledge to get work done better and faster (and to develop talents). I have been in this field since 1996, I am regenerating myself every few years, I never have a dull moment. Go for it!"

Tuomo Truhponen's curator insight, March 29, 2015 5:31 PM

I wonder where this 90's idea of knowledge management came from... I studied "innovation" in late 2000's and came across the concept of knowledge management by that time. I was immersed in "90's" classics like Nonaka et al., Spender, von Hippel, Granovetter, Brown & Duguid ...


I thought they had nailed creativity of groups/organizations quite well. Then I ended up in debate over Nonaka SECI-model. I was surprised learn that knowledge management can be viewed from such a different way.


I had though knowledge management is a tool/framework/ideas that help to create things: products, technologies, organizations ... make things happen. I was blown away when I encountered idea that knowledge management is nothing more than IT - coding tacit knowledge to database.


What happened? Did engineer steal "knowledge management" from humanists?

The End of Knowledge Management is Already Here

Despite what people think, the end state of knowledge management is already here. All future things are uncertain and that is not going to change no matter how much information, or how many artifacts, you have at hand. Entropy dictates that the problems of uncertainty multiply with the increase of information or artifacts. Topic: Information Management.

Some confusions in the article on the subject KM. Beto do Valle's insights at the end have clarified the understandings and are definitely worth noting. He wrote, "knowledge management" still needs to find better ways to make more value out of knowledge sharing, flow, application and innovation".
