KM as a Framework for Managing Knowledge Assets

KM as a Framework for Managing Knowledge Assets by Lynda Moulton

Now is a good time to talk about what KM should really be about and how it relates to business processes like content management (CM) and information technology (IT). In attempting to scope out important business components for managers to keep in mind, we give them a framework for positioning IT projects as adjunct, enabling activities in the larger business context. KM as a framework for managing knowledge assets in the organization is one way of looking some of the components of KM and relating them to other infrastructure activities.

In spite of the mostly negative things we had to say about KM, we did recognize there was a real, identifiable problem that a combination of business practices and processes, with the help of a little technology, could address. In fact, and this was part of the cause of the vendor frenzy, businesses thought of many of their information management problems as knowledge management problems. You can argue that the concept is flawed, but you can’t tell the customer they don’t have a problem.

Today, the idea of KM is much more respectable — there is less hype, and a lot more understanding of the role technology can legitimately play in helping companies better manage their knowledge assets. Contributor Lynda Moulton is one technologist and KM expert that has helped KM become reputable. Her advice in this issue is valuable, current, and hype-free.

IT is from Mars – web content is from Venus

IT is from Mars web content is from Venus by Gerry McGovern

The information technology (IT) industry fundamentally doesn’t understand the true value of web content. This lack of understanding is just one more reason why IT will continue to decline in influence over the next five years.

Information is a strange word. Some people see information as a noun. It is a thing. These people look at eight words and see 60 characters. What interests them is not the meaning of these words but whether the characters were dynamically generated, and whether they are stored in XML.

Others see information as a verb; as the process of communicating knowledge that results in action. These people don’t see 60 characters but rather a heading that is going to engage readers’ attention and get them to act.
