Knowledge Management: This presents a brief definition of knowledge management.
A fundamental principle of knowledge management is taking data and transforming it into a form of knowledge. For example; consider a document containing the previous quarter sales for a grocery store. As it stands, the information in the document is data. If an employee reads this document, recognizes the products and sees that the sales of eggs dropped and is signaling a downward trend, the data is now information. The employee examines why eggs aren’t selling and determines that people no longer want to eat as many eggs because they are high in cholesterol. This new belief, based on reasoning and reflection, is knowledge.
These are some forms of knowledge that apply in the business context. Concepts and methodologies relate are thoughts and notions built on past instances. Ex: The concept of juggling is “I won’t drop the balls”. Facts, beliefs, truths and laws are all concepts build on evidence. Know what, know how and know why is our understanding of all facets of our current situation or task. Judgments, expectations and insights are predicted beliefs based on past experiences. Relationships and leverage points are our beliefs and expectations in regard to another entity. Intuition and feelings represent our ability to acquire knowledge without the use or interference of reasoning. Meaning and sense making represents our ability to translate our acquired information into an understanding.
Knowledge is the foundation of a successful business. It increases when it is shared and reused with a snowball effect. Each individual who comes into contact with knowledge can modify or add to it. Thorough knowledge of processes leads to increased efficiency. Strong environmental knowledge can help reduce uncertainty and increases time of response due to anticipation and an intelligent reaction. Knowledge can increase the value of current products by better understanding the customers needs and how they can be sold.
Knowledge management is difficult because knowledge is hard to extract and pass on. It usually exists in the minds of the individual, it can be buried in old, forgotten reports and often leaves with the employee. It is believed that knowledge is power and this concept can lead to knowledge hoarding. Knowledge hoarding is when someone refuses to share their knowledge in order to hold an advantage over other employees.
