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.

    I truly agree with you Tega . If by installing certain software could generate KM then I think KM would not be such a big issue to be discussed about . It even implies more to the organisation which are not technologically advanced but they are knowledge enriched organisation and are doing very well .
