Vortrag und Workshop am 02. Juli 2015

Knowledge management (KM) has to be seen within the context of business strategy and business need. It is not an end itself, but a tool to deliver better business performance, and this view is crucial to developing and crafting an effective KM strategy.

This session covers the role that librarians and information professionals play in creating a strategy to give direction to a KM program within their organization. Recognizing business drivers, clarifying strategic knowledge areas for the organization, and finding and defining key stakeholders who need to be involved, these are all activities that the KM responsible person must address.
