Enterprise Knowledge Management
What is enterprise knowledge management?
When we refer to “enterprise knowledge management,” we’re referring to the ways in which an organization as a whole manages its internal knowledge and information — whether that knowledge is stored in people’s heads or captured in knowledge assets.
Enterprise knowledge management includes the organization-wide processes, procedures, practices, and systems for managing, securing, and transmitting information and knowledge. Often, processes and/or platforms for managing knowledge are adopted by departments or teams in silos within an organization. But with enterprise knowledge management, our focus is on transitioning from ad hoc, uncoordinated, or siloed processes and platforms to a more cohesive, organization-wide approach.
Moving from an ad hoc approach to knowledge management to an enterprise approach is a journey and takes time, process improvements, and change management. The best way to get started with knowledge management is to conduct a current state assessment to examine current processes, platforms, policies, and unofficial practices in place throughout the organization.
