Transferring Knowledge – Training

Can training be said to be a way ofgenerating, storing, distributing, applying and managing knowledge?

From my experience which was mostly the case couple of times, the issue of training is basically where one person is saddled with the responsibility of passing down information, knowledge and how "to-dos" to a set of "unenthusiastic" people. But does this really cover the main idea or the true meaning of managing knowledge bearing in mind that key points in the KM process are transferring and distributing.

I am quite optimistic that during the course of the KBAM module i would know more efficient processes and strategies in which KM can be applied across the whole organisation in order for them to become excellent.

    Training can be the basis of KM. But for experiencing all stages so that you can ‘master’ KM, you have to go beyond training. The problem is that sharing knowledge most of the time has certain barriers. And these barriers can arise at all levels of learning (individual, team, organizational, inter-organizational) for several reasons. The key element thus, for every company is to try to overcome the barriers and create an environment in which transferring knowledge is not just in terms of training, but a way of life.

    I guess todays seminar summed this up quite well, that indeed a number of management activities such as training, documentation, use of technology etc etc are a foundation towards managing knowledge but it is about establishing a culture where people can share knowldge and not feel as if they are disadvantaged by giving away what they considered a competative advantage and people being able to speak up in a safe enviroment, which as Ilektra points out is a barrier that we need to overcome.
