Knowledge Management means something a bit different to everyone. As part of our 2019 member survey, here are some of the responses about how KM has been a purpose as well as a profession.
On the meaning of KM to one's career:
KM is about "adding value by capturing the most meaningful internal information and making it discoverable to support my company's business goals."
KM means "organizing information about our business processes and policies in ways that make it useful and accessible to our faculty, staff, and students with the goal of improving service and processes."
"KM, or organizational knowledge sharing, has been my passion from the period I worked as a librarian and director of information resources for the Royal Bank of Canada. I have been very lucky for the last years to be the program director for KMWorld [and] see the latest strategies, technologies, thought leaders and practitioners in the KM field. And that's what knowledge sharing is all about -- creating a network for sharing, learning, innovating, succeeding."
"I teach graduate students who seek certification as school library media specialists.These educators will be the information specialists in their schools, collaborations with other educators to teach information literacy, technology, and library program management."
