About the course


Organisations have implemented Knowledge Management (KM) in many ways – through a ‘big-bang’ organisation-wide approach or within a department hoping for a success story for future expansion. However, many KM projects fail due to varied reasons - “There was too much reliance on IT”, “KM requires extra effort with no visible results” and “Leaders were not engaged in driving KM”. One common and consistent failure factor is the lack of alignment between KM initiatives and business outcomes. This programme covers key KM concepts; practical issues in aligning KM projects to support business objectives; elements of an implementation framework; and shares insights from past KM implementations.
