Knowledge management balance
It is interesting that in KM much emphasis is given to people who need to share their knowledge for organizational benefit. However, in my opinion, also important is for organization to continually feed that source of knowledge that is to say to feed and develop the brains of people in order for them to produce knowledge. Because usage of knowledge of people without giving back result in exploitation and deterioration of sources of that knowledge. It is very necessary to develop people, to give them opportunities to learn, to challenge them, encourage them to try new ways of working, emotionally support them, investing in their capabilities and knowledge. In that case only people will learn and produce knowledge, which then could be used for creation of value for organization. Thus, it is very important to keep a balance between results and sources of that results, if organization wants people produce and share knowledge, it has to invest time, money and support in the sources of that knowledge, in people and their capabilities.
