Analyzing Knowledge Management Job Market

Sarajlic-Basic, Elvedina January 2010 (has links)
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. 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.

Developing and Validating A KMS Success Model

Wang, Yu-Min 29 July 2004 (has links)
Many organizations are planning and developing information systems specifically to facilitate and manage knowledge activities. Such systems are referred to as Knowledge Management Systems (KMSs). How to successfully implement KMS is an important issue that has attracted the interest of many pundits. However, KMSs are just beginning to appear in organizations. There is a general scarcity of models and frameworks available for evaluating and guiding KMS success. This study proposes a model for measuring KMS success. An empirical study was conducted to collect data. This data was empirically used to test the proposed research model. This model is derived through an analysis of current practice and outcomes of knowledge management and an intensive review of information system success literature. Five variables, system quality, knowledge/ information quality, valuation of KMS benefits, user satisfaction, and system use, are proposed as dependent variables to evaluate KMS success and their interrelationships are defined and discussed.

The contribution of knowledge management practices in generating a corporate culture of innovation

Deacon, Jeffrey James 04 March 2010 (has links)
Organisations in all spheres of industries are facing constant change and need to be innovative to carve out a competitive market share. Knowledge is universally recognised as the organisation’s most valuable asset and strategic resource. The competitive business environment is impelling organisations to utilise and strengthen their knowledge capital in order to manage these changes. The relationship between knowledge management and innovation is not well understood and there is a need to explicitly examine this relationship explicitly. The objective of this study is to focus on the internal environment of listed companies in South Africa and determine to what extent knowledge management practices can contribute to an organisational culture of innovation and whether or not these practices are antecedents to innovative behaviour by knowledge workers Senior members in these companies were contacted by email and requested to access a questionnaire that was available via a Web address and complete the questionnaire. All completed questionnaires were analysed, using Item analysis, multiple regression and discriminant analysis. Results show that knowledge management practices: the organisation's science and technology human capital profile and the organisation is flexible and opportunistic are important predictors of innovativeness in organisations that are perceived to have an organisational culture of innovation.

Utilisation of intranet in South African organisations as a knowledge management tool

Khoza, Andries David January 2008 (has links)
Study Supervisor: . Completed: 2008 / Purpose – To investigate the utilisation of intranet as a knowledge management (KM) tool in South African organisations Findings – The intranet is under utilised in many South African organisations, only 25 percent of the organisations represented in the survey has indicated to have been using the intranet as a tool to facilitate knowledge management. Most respondents indicated that emails and meetings were most effectively utilised as knowledge management tools in their respective organisations. The study also reveals that the content on the intranet is mainly focused on policies, employee contacts and communication bulletins. Employees do not contribute directly to the intranet content, hence the content on the intranet is mainly generic in nature; Information Technology (IT) teams, management and Human Resource (HR) teams are the main contributors of the intranet content. Research limitations/implications – Further research is needed to compare and deduce the benefits of utilising the intranet as a knowledge management tool with regard to business performance indexes such as, competitive advantage, market share, profits, long term growth, bottom line, sales, turnover, cost savings, etc.
