It is said that knowledge is power. Knowledge is information that has been analyzed,
understood and internalized. Knowledge Management consists of three processes:
Knowledge Creation, Knowledge Storage and Knowledge Use. It is generally agreed that
we create knowledge in two ways: either by learning from other people, or by being
creative and inventive and coming up with new concepts and ideas of our own, which
we can test to be sure they are valid.
Storage of knowledge is vitally important. Not everything that we learn is immediately
relevant or useful. Sometimes it can take years before a use is found. Use of knowledge
is when our ideas and learning are found to have applications in the real-world, when
learning translates into action.
ere are two fundamental approaches of knowledge management-
Approach and Explicit Knowledge Approach. Th
e salient characteristic of the tacit
knowledge approach is the basic belief that knowledge is essentially personal in nature
and is diffi
cult to extract from the heads of individuals. It can best be accomplished
by the transfer of people as ?knowledge carriers? from one part of an organization to
another. In contrast, the explicit knowledge approach holds that knowledge is something
that can be explained by articulating the knowledge assets that can then be disseminated
within an organization through documents, drawings, standard operating procedures,
manuals of best practice, and the like.
Creating a Genuine ?Learning Organization? that knows how to acquire and
create knowledge, how to store it and how to use it, is very hard. Th
e solution is not
to become a ?learning organization?, but to fi
nd ways of discovering, organizing
and exploiting the knowledge that is already latent within the organization.
A Sanskrit slogan on knowledge: ?Vidya naam nar ras Rupa madhikam? prachahn
Knowledge is known as the countenance of man, more so a wealth which is hidden.
