What is Knowledge Management?

“Knowledge Management is a strategic, business discipline for managing the cultural conditions necessary to ensure the effective capture, transfer and translation of knowledge from those who “know” to those who “need to know” in support of organizational goals, objectives and outcomes”

(B. Melnick, CKO, The Knowledge Management Institute of Canada, 2012)

The Knowledge Imperative?

Simply put, the world has irrevocably changed. Knowledge is the “new commodity” and those organizations which are able to effectively leverage knowledge both from within their organization and from outside to drive continual improvement of organizational goals, objectives and outcomes, will lead in the global knowledge economy. According to David Johnston, The Governor General of Canada:

“In our globalized world, the well-being of nations is increasingly being defined by the ability to develop and advance knowledge. In other words, knowledge – as opposed to military might or GDP – is gaining momentum as the new currency and passport to success”
