7 Knowledge Management Knowledge management is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, retrieving, evaluating, and sharing an enterprise’s tacit and explicit knowledge assets to meet mission objectives. The objective is to connect those who know with those who need to know (know-why, know-what, know-who, and know-how) by leveraging knowledge transfers from one-to-many across the enterprise. (Proposed AR 25-1 revised definition)

KM Thoughts “KM is a JOURNEY not a DESTINATION” -Warick Holder

9 What is Knowledge? Source: R. Ackoff’s “Pyramid to Wisdom” (1989, 1996)
Understanding that permits knowledge to be used Organized information that provides guidance or initiates action Knowledge Collection of related data with context and perspective Information DIKW (Data, Information, Knowledge, Wisdom) model from Quezon City (QC) Weather in DIKW context: If you see the weather forecast for QC but don’t live there (say you’re in another country), then it has no direct connection to your life – so its just DATA If you happen to live or work in QC, then this same set of numbers becomes INFORMATION – because it informs you of what the weather is like – even if you can’t do anything about it. If you live or work in QC and can use the information as a basis to make a decision (e.g., will you bring an umbrella or shades because it will be hot?) or take action (e.g., you won’t water the plants or wash the car because it might rain, etc.), then it becomes KNOWLEDGE. WISDOM is the experience that comes with using knowledge repeatedly (e.g., you know that if the weather report says 26 – 31C, partly cloudy, then it won’t rain – so its okay to wear your new shoes to go to school or work). Data Raw / hard facts

10 Types of Knowledge Explicit Knowledge Tacit Knowledge
Knowledge that is written down – and thus, easily recorded, shared, tracked, and measured, as well as edited or improved by others. Tacit Knowledge Knowledge in your head. What you know but cannot easily share that lets you do a better job.
