  • Knowledge Mapping
    • What is knowledge mapping?
    visual representation of the existing knowledge in the organisation, and the knowledge needed for running the organisation smoothly - with details such as location, quality, accessibility, relation, etc Humans have the capability to process large amounts of information presented graphically
  • Knowledge Mapping
    • Benefits
    • Finds key sources of knowledge creation
    • Encourages reuse and prevents reinvention
    • Highlights islands of expertise
    • Provides an inventory and evaluation of intellectual and intangible assets
    • Improves decision making and problem solving by providing applicable information
    • Provides insights into organisational knowledge
  • Knowledge Mapping
    • Shows
    • Available knowledge resources
    • Knowledge clusters and communities
    • Who uses what knowledge resources
    • The paths of knowledge exchange
    • The knowledge lifecycle
    • Knowledge gap
  • Knowledge Mapping
    • Key points
    • should be easily accessible to all in the organisation
    • should be easy to understand , update and evolve
    • should be updated regularly
    • should be an ongoing process since knowledge landscapes are continuously shifting and evolving
  • Knowledge Mapping
    • Creation
    transferring tacit and explicit knowledge into graphical formats with detailed information like where is it, who holds it that are easy to understand and interpret by the end users, who may be managers, experts, system developers, or anybody
  • Knowledge Mapping
    • Creation
    • Two common approaches:
    • map knowledge resources and assets, showing what knowledge exists in the organisation and where it can be found
    • plus knowledge flows, showing how that knowledge moves around the organisation from where it is to where it is needed
  • Knowledge Mapping
    • Creation
    • Standard constructing method:
    • define the topic or focus question
    • identify and list the most important or “general” knowledge that are associated with that topic
    • add links and details to form a preliminary Knowledge Map
    • look for cross-links, which link together Knowledge that are in different areas or sub-domains on the map
    • review and make any necessary changes to structure or content
  • knowledge is power , broadly accessible, understandable, and shared knowledge is even more powerful Thank you
