Managing Knowledge Resources

  • Ruud Weijermars


Your organization cannot learn effectively unless everyone has access to adequate sources and records from which to expand your organizational knowledge base. Appropriate Knowledge Management, therefore, is a prerequisite for effective Organizational Learning. Enterprises and other organizations need to know what their knowledge assets are, how to manage these assets, and how to make use of them to get maximum return. Knowledge resides in databases, knowledge banks and peoples’ heads—all distributed right across the enterprise. Effective Knowledge Management uncovers the crucial experience, accelerates time-to-market and results in growth. Ineffective Knowledge Management results in duplication, waste and loss of your market share.
