Background

Background

Knowledge Management is a wide ranging and essential skill, function, and emerging discipline. It is often considered in terms of its enabling technologies - the IT applications, websites, platforms and databases that facilitate interactions with data and other content, and facilitate connections between individuals and networks. The KM Academy covers such technologies but not as ends in themselves, by taking a more holistic approach.

The KM Academy covers the individual perspective, on how to manage one’s own knowledge effectively, through to how teams, organizations and groups of all kinds engage in effective KM practice. Such KM enables communities and networks to engage in joint sense-making and helps to frame issues for analysis and action. It helps to establish the common ground necessary for social dialogue and concerted action by workers’, employers’ organizations, and governments. A working knowledge of KM is quickly becoming a baseline requirement in our increasingly knowledge driven society.
