Knowledge management is the effective management of an organization's knowledge processes to achieve the organization's goals.  The organization's knowledge processes are active gathering, active dissemination, and active application of knowledge.

Competitive advantage is achieved through developing and implementing creative and timely business solutions that reuse applicable knowledge and that use newly created knowledge.  Newly created knowledge is referred to as innovation.

The goal of this module is to help candidate understand what knowledge management is, where and how it should be applied and the challenges that go along with implementing knowledge management systems.

This module develops both the technical and behavioural aspects of knowledge management.  This module prepares candidate for assessing the knowledge management systems in their own organizations and making recommendations for improvements in those systems.  The cases examined in this module further apply the concepts and tools learned throughout the module.

  • Apply the basic concepts of knowledge management through a series of group and individual assignments
