Knowledge Management & Knowledge Engineering
I found an article related to Knowledge Management (KM) and Knowledge Engineering (KE), the terms are different, the concept is very similar but the focus might be slightly different.
A manager is to excercise executive, administrative and supervisory direction, instead, an engineer is to construct, or contrive a plan out. The main difference seems to be that managers (for KM) establishes the path, the direction the process and people should take, whilst the engineer (for KE) develops those processes, the means to accomplish that direction.
Knowledge managers work on the knowledge needs for the organization. They look for the understanding of what knowledge is needed to make the decisions enabling to actions.
Knowledge engineers work on areas such as data and information representation and encoding methodologies, data repositories, technologies which enhance the flow of the information, activities which involve IT operations.
Companies have different professionals specialized in diverse areas, but in the end, it is important that all parties share a clear mutual understanding to develop the processes of sharing knowledge.
