While applying knowledge management within an organizations, different aspects can be taken into consideration. Although knowledge management is simply gatheration of knowledge from different internal and external sources, sharing it with the organizational members and then applying that knowledge to innovate and improve. The knowledge could be gathered through the interaction between people of the organizationa and it is also shared among them. There are two types of knowledge; tactic and explicit. Tactic knowledge is one that reffers to mental models and what is inside the minds of teh employees whereas teh explicit is the one that is recorded and already available. Although, the knowledge can be gathered through the social aspect but it could also be gathered through technology. Through the use of networks and other mediums like intranets that can act as knowledge transfer mediums. The more preferred approach  that teh organizations foolow today is the combination of both the social aspect as well as the technological aspect. Since technology is a very effective medium for communication and sharing therefore it is very popular and used widely in today's world.

There is a need for organizations to consider the technological aspect as well since it has become inevitable. It is the need of the time to adopt a socio-technical approach for knowledge management within organizations.

People should realize the importance of knowledge management and especially the use of effective techniques that can aid the process of knowledge gathering and implementation, for the purpose of organizational growth and success.

  1. I agree with you.. While KM does have a social dimension to it- knowledge sharing creation acquisition etc. There are technological aspects such as creation of a knowledge data-base, sort of an online repository of knowledge which can really be very beneficial for the organization….
