The Evolution of Knowledge Management
This is a bit of a marmite infograph for some of the KM people I have spoken to.
Some love it, others hate it. I wonder what your thoughts are?
The Socialcast blog says ‘Knowledge management has become an important and vital practice in the enterprise.
As we have shifted from an industrial-based society to an information-based one, many jobs and tasks have been automated by machinery.
The result is a smaller workforce and the advent of the knowledge worker – an employee, whose job depends on tacit information that is rarely documented, limiting an organisation’s ability to draw upon it in the future.
Implementing solutions to collect and preserve tacit knowledge has become a high priority, allowing companies to create digital libraries of employee experiences and practices for future generations.
The transfer of knowledge has evolved from the written word on rocks and paper to spoken stories heard live via telephones to digital, virtual, real-time communities on the web.
