Knowledge mobilization: The challenge for information professionalsKeen, Peter G.W. January 2006 (has links)
This paper examines the challenges that the success of library and information systems design and implementation is now generating. It makes a distinction between management and mobilization and argues that the organizational success of the interrelated fields of knowledge management and in-formation systems (KM/IS) rests on strengthening (1) their descriptive understanding of how individuals in organizations make their own choices about accessing, using and sharing knowledge and (2) corre-sponding prescriptive recommendations for adapting the technical designs of KM/IS to best accommo-date those choices. It is success that has created this need, in that every major trend in KM/IS adds to user choices and reduces institutional control; the library now has no locked doors and experts can â meetâ wherever they are and whenever they want. Blogs bypass all the formal traditions, practices, edi-torial policies, verification procedures and protections against libel and misrepresentation of traditional print media. The frequent use of the term â democratic journalismâ to describe the blog phenomenon (George, 2006) in itself implies that traditional journalism is non-democratic. While KM/IS is not driven by a search for profits in the mass consumer market, it shares the same basic aim as leaders in consumer electronics, mobile data services, and even the gaming field. It is a commitment of institutional funds, whether from research grants or in-house sources, to innovate through information technology. The pur-pose of the innovation is to enable and encourage new behaviors. Knowledge management is focused in this regard on knowledge-sharing and collaboration. Information services are generally more centered on individual information-seeking and learning. When user choices determine the adoption and impact of this type pf innovation, then obviously it is essential to understand the foundations and dynamics of choice.

Knowledge management in the Malaysian multimedia super corridor /Read, Harold. Unknown Date (has links)
Paper one provides a historical perspective of how the concept of knowledge moved out from the realms of philosophy into the world of commerce where it is regarded as a strategic asset, thereby motivating attempts at developing frameworks for managing it. / Paper two describes an exploratory survey on the knowledge management (KM) practices of MSC-status companies. These are companies that have registered with the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDC), which is a one stop government agency established to promote the development of the Malaysian Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC). Amongst others, MSC-status companies must be in knowledge-based businesses such as education, biotechnology, software design, and multimedia content development. Pending the establishment of their operations in the MSC, some MSC-status companies still operate from outside of the MSC, including overseas. MSC-status companies include some of Malaysia's and the world's leading knowledge-based companies. / Paper three describes an exploratory study to investigate the nature of informal knowledge sharing amongst MSC-status companies. Other research indicates that a key attraction for firms to locate in clusters such as California's Silicon Valley seems to be the opportunity for getting valuable information about the industry and the competition by just being in the cluster. The research investigated what informal channels MSC companies normally tap into for obtaining free unintended information exchange about their environment; in conjunction with this, the nature of industry knowledge that gets exchanged informally through such channels were explored. The research also investigated whether there are differences in the way firms tap into their knowledge milieu, depending on whether they operate from inside or outside of the MSC cluster. / Thesis (DoctorateofBusinessAdministration))--University of South Australia, 2004.

Analyzing Knowledge Management Job MarketSarajlic-Basic, Elvedina January 2010 (has links)
<p>Nowadays companies have changed the way they do the business and have realized that they must explicitly manage their intellectual resources and capabilities in order to remain competitive. The consequence is a rise in demand for knowledge management professionals. Since knowledge management is an emerging discipline, presently there is no widely accepted competency framework for knowledge management professions available.</p><p>A quantitative content analysis was performed using 89 job advertisements from United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Ireland in order to identify competencies of knowledge management profession. The results of the study show that most of the job advertisements asked for skills in Knowledge Management Technologies which are important for knowledge management professionals to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of knowledge management processes. The study shows also that knowledge management is more than creation, capturing, sharing and using of knowledge. Moreover it proves that knowledge management does not have a set of clear job titles and that it does not provide clearly bounded set of activities and tasks. Generally much misunderstanding exists about who and what knowledge management professionals are and what kind of skills they have to possess.</p>
