Knowledge management in a South African organization: application and comparison of the work of Nonaka nad Takeuchi to practice.

Harry, Ricardo January 2005 (has links)
<p>The aim of this thesis is to provide a better understanding of how the knowledge creation process can be used to add value to the management of knowledge in a South African organization. This thesis describes, explores and explains how knowledge is created within an organization, how the organization can use it to add value to its current business practices and how a knowledge management methodology that is aligned with the systems thinking principle, can be used to manage the knowledge creation process.</p>

Explaining and Alleviating Information Management Indeterminism: A Knowledge-based Framework

Chen, Hsinchun, Danowitz, A.K., Lynch, K.J., Goodman, S.E., McHenry, W.K. 07 1900 (has links)
Artificial Intelligence Lab, Department of MIS, University of Arizona / Our research attempted to identify the nature and causes of information management indeterminism in an online research environment and to propose solutions for alleviating this indeterminism. We conducted two empirical studies of information management activities. The first study identified the types and nature of information management indeterminism by evaluating archived texts. The second study focused on four sources of indeterminism: subject area knowledge, classification knowledge, system knowledge, and collaboration knowledge. A knowledge-based design for alleviating indeterminism, which contains a system-generated thesaurus and an inferencing engine, is also proposed in this article.

Knowledge Management: Challenges for the special librarian

Weerasinghe, Shivanthi January 2006 (has links)
Knowledge Management is considered important for organizational development, and organizational librarians are seen as capable players in this field. This paper presents the view that special libraries can be places for the knowledge management practices but concludes that the librarians have to move from their passive roles and assume the roles of partners in this environment.

COPLINK: A case of intelligent analysis and knowledge management

Hauck, Roslin V., Chen, Hsinchun January 1999 (has links)
Artificial Intelligence Lab, Department of MIS, University of Arizona / Law enforcement agencies across the United States have begun to focus on innovative knowledge management technologies to aid in the analysis of criminal information. The use of such technologies can serve as intelligence tools to combat criminal activity by aiding in case investigation or even by predicting criminal activity. Funded by the National Institute of Justice, the University of Arizonaâ s Artificial Intelligence Lab has teamed with the Tucson Police Department (TPD) to develop the Coplink Concept Space application, which serves to uncover relationships between different types of information currently existing in TPDâ s records management system. A small-scale field study involving real law enforcement personnel indicates that the use of Coplink Concept Space can reduce the time spent on the investigative task of linking criminal information as well as provide strong arguments for expanded development of similar knowledge management systems in support of law enforcement.

Knowledge mobilization: The challenge for information professionals

Keen, 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.

Increasing the process capacity of a knowledge intensive process through the use of process reengineering and knowledge-value added methodologies

Baxter, Joseph L., Campbell, Errol A. 06 1900 (has links)
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. / In the increasingly dynamic environment of information technology, it has become imperative that organizations continue to seek ways to effectively capture and measure knowledge in order to survive. With the emergence of a global economy and information networks, the knowledge creating capacity within organizations has grown tremendously. As a result, organizations are now shifting their focus to management of the knowledge used in executing processes and producing products. As demand for quality products and services continues to grow, companies must now find ways to effectively manage knowledge intensive processes in order to increase overall process capacity. Through business process reengineering and the KVA methodology, this thesis will seek to identify ways in which the performance of knowledge assets can be measured and make recommendations to improve the capacity of knowledge intensive processes, better enabling organizations to meet increased demand. / Lieutenant, United States Navy / Major, United States Marine Corps
