While working on the presentation I came across a very interesting term called knowledge mapping. Knowledge maps are visual representation of the organizations policies and procedures. They help organization in in streamlining company’s policies that gets communicated effectively for the users at one accessible place. Looking in the daily life every organization wants to be more agile to anticipate the threats and the opportunities available to become more faster as the world is moving so fast and to be more cost effective. To carry out this process more effectively organization should focus on capturing relevant knowledge that is evolving continuously and store it in form of texts, data models, pictures etc. The map serves as the continuously evolving organization’s memory, capturing and integrating the key knowledge of an organization.
Knowledge maps facilitates faster job and role orientation and training for new or the reassigned employees or the employees working on contract basis. Using these maps the workers can orient themselves by keying in on their organizational role and further navigating to their assigned responsibilities and then on to views of the rest of the enterprise to learn how it really works.
I would like to conclude by saying maps facilitate business management programs by reducing employee change resistance and by providing interim change designs for tracking the progress.
