Information Session for the Master of Science in Knowledge Management Information Session for the Master of Science in Knowledge Management Presentation Transcript

  • Information Session for the Master of Science in Knowledge Management Professor Eric Tsui Program Leader
  • HK’s transformation into a KBE Hong Kong’s competitiveness Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering
  • What’s it like working in the Knowledge Economy? Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering
  • Nature of Knowledge Work • Increasingly less routine, more analytical and need to be more collaborative • Highly unstructured, unpredictable, disruptive yet often come with a sense of urgency • Requires a different set of metrics for performance measurement • Not only requires data and information but also knowledge and experience of the individual • Group/Collaborative task execution, decision making and problem solving • A huge amount of data and information to deal with • Often more than one way to solve a problem, reflection and a learning environment are crucial Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering
  • One definition of KM Knowledge Management (KM) is a cross disciplinary practice that enables organizations to improve ways to create, adopt, validate, diffuse, store and use knowledge in order to attain goals faster and more effectively. Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering
  • Sample Knowledge Management projects 1. To assess the knowledge sharing and collaboration culture of an organisation 2. Identify critical knowledge assets and knowledge flow in core business processes 3. Creation of a Knowledge Management Strategy 4. Enhance the sharing of tacit knowledge across project teams and business units 5. Creation of knowledge repository with a proper classification framework 6. Enterprise Portal, taxonomy and advanced search for departmental-wide collaborations 7. Use of Web 2.0 tools to combat information overload and enhance collaborations 8. Document Management strategy and system for intensive collaborations in information-centric organisations 9. … Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering
  • KM is appealing to organizations that • engage in knowledge-intensive tasks (all industries) • have a geographically dispersed or mobile workforce that needs to engage in collaborative work • require collaborations across organizational boundaries • require a high concentration of customer knowledge • have grown or contracted significantly in a short period • derive a lot of core knowledge from project-based work • learning is a key business driver for maintaining competitiveness • are about to conduct, conducting or recently completed a BPR • that are involved in a Merger, Acquisition or Divestment • are public-listed companies with an emphasis on shareholder value Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering
