Welcome to the KM world! Knowledge Management and Its Applications
Presenter: PhD students from the IS Department w/ Dr. Nesrine Zemirli, Vice-Head of the Information Systems Department in CCIS

Abstract: Knowledge Management is now a crucial issue in companies: Knowledge is a major economic challenge for the future. Create, capitalize and share its Knowledge Capital is a need of any innovative organization and society. But managing the Knowledge Capital is not only processing information through new technologies. It is a long term program, starting from a strategic commitment, involving a correct analysis of Knowledge and Know-how in the company, and integrating various and well adapted tools.
 
Unfortunately, there is no consensus on the nature of knowledge and no universal definition of knowledge management (KM), just as there's no agreement as to what constitutes knowledge in the first place. For this reason, it's best to think of KM in the broadest context. Succinctly put, KM involves blending a company’s internal and external information and turning it into actionable knowledge via a technology platform.  Knowledge management (KM) may simply be seen as doing what is needed to get the most out of knowledge resources. In general, KM focuses on organizing and making available important knowledge, wherever and whenever it is needed.  KM  helps organizations to identify, select, organize, disseminate, and transfer important information and expertise that are part of the organization’s memory. Indeed, KM is the process through which organizations generate value from their intellectual and knowledge-based assets. In this seminar, we present you an overview of the KM, trying to give a clear idea about the KM key issues in different contexts. We see the knowledge management (KM) from several perspectives.
