Knowledge Management

by Fredrik Savin on 22/01/2008 · 1 comment

I have just started to take a course called IT for Business at Cass Business School. The course touches upon everything from IT Management issues to Web 2.0.

Ron Young delivered the first lecture yesterday and talked about Knowledge Management (KM) and technology. Ron is the CEO of a company called Knowledge Associates. He is acknowledged as a leading expert in KM and has worked with leading organisations in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Ron outlined five key challenges that he reckons companies will face within the next 10 years:

  • Companies need to substantially increase the productivity of knowledge working, at least by a 50 fold
  • Companies need to exponentially develop global knowledge sharing networks and relations
  • Companies need to radically innovate
  • Companies need to dramatically improve quality
  • Leadership must be aligned to the timeless business principles (increase sales, reduce costs, increase profit/value)
