Knowledge Management Strategy

While the knowledge management processes section dealt with the general ways knowledge can be managed, this section tackles long-term knowledge management strategy. Strategic investments represent the company’s choices/options so as to enable and enhance the processes outlined earlier (e.g. knowledge sharing) and to offer help define which knowledge is relevant (i.e. in line with strategic objectives) and which is not.

As many of you might realize, many of the strategic initiatives deal with aspects that extend into different branches of management. I will endeavor to stick to the scope of this subsection and, for the most part, limit my discussion only to aspects relevant to knowledge management strategy. Furthermore, at all stages of the following discussion on knowledge management strategy, I will also refer to different knowledge types and to IT systems, whenever necessary. However, the subsection dealing with knowledge management systems will be the first that focuses specifically on IT. It will discuss the general implementation issues, leading to the subsequent section that looks at some specific systems and tools.

At the end, I will present a summary of all the conclusions and recommendations made throughout this section and the one on knowledge management processes, in a subsection titled Knowledge Management Best Practices.This will serve as a way to provide a quick overview of knowledge management strategy, and could be read on its own by readers who are not interested in a more detailed account.
