What exactly is Knowledge Management?
July 14, 2006
I know I should know. I read the web sites, I try and make sense out of what it is they’re talking about but I’m missing something fundamental here – I simply haven’t a clue what knowledge management is, why people are talking about it so much and what it looks like in real life. This feels like my first year Masters’ course where I struggled with social constructionism until the penny dropped and realised that SC isn’t any fixed thing – it’s merely a way of looking at everything else. Is KM similar? I can’t seem to find an introduction to KM – it’s as if everyone is talking a secret code that I can’t crack. What bit of knowledge do I need to manage or find in order to understand what it’s all about?
