Effectively managed knowledge is one of the greatest resources modern organisations possess – and information professionals, with their expertise and understanding of their organisation’s working needs, are well positioned to take the lead.
The concepts and theories of KM are essential when interacting with senior management and other key stakeholders but doing KM is intensely practical. Knowledge Managers have to find out what will work for their organisation, and discovering new ways to engage work colleagues will be challenging and fun.
