The journey so far though not easy has been one of learning and unlearning, sharing of examples and experiences,working with people from diverse cultures and background, understanding new ways of doing tasks, searching for information and knowledge across a wide range of available resources,being able to filter what is important and what is not while asking the questions why and why not.
With all these different phases during this journey looking back to the days of CBE and now, it has increased my knowledge database and i am quite certain we have all gone through this different phases and learnt quite a lot.
From my understanding from the workshop we had on information, knowledge and awareness, i can say the process of assessing,gathering and interpreting information has not been the hardest part for me but rather being able to anticipate.
Some of this knowledge gained from all this is being stored up as explicit and tacit. But in due time, i will be able to convert and make use of the tacit knowledge better later on the job.
Having the right knowlegde in carrying out a task in todays high tech world, equips you with power but the ability for everyone individual within the orgainsation to assess and manage this knowledge in a very efficient way is what matters. The need for a KM system is to facilitate the willingness to share info.
However, the question now is does having a KM system in place really guarantee this?
From some of the presentations we had on Friday, with some teams proposing the use of various softwares and tech driven tools to manage their assets. Will the use of these software enable the spread of knowledge within the organisation?
My opinion on this is that to a certain extent it might help brigde the gap in knowledge a little bit but not entirely.
