Course Overview

The emergence of the knowledge-based economy has highlighted the need for effective exploitation of knowledge, making knowledge management an essential area of activity in various large organizations. Knowledge management (KM) is a systematic process of taking advantage of intellectual capital and knowledge assets to enhance organizational success. It helps build the capacity of the organization by developing, organizing, retaining and utilizing human and knowledge resources which contribute directly to the organization‗s survivability and profitability. With the increased realization of the value of knowledge and the need to exploit it in day-to-day operations, both public and private sector organizations have embarked on KM initiatives. Many have created formal positions and formed new divisions or departments to look into ways and means to apply KM in their operations. This has created a need for the training of KM professionals capable of taking the lead in the development and implementation of KM initiatives within their organizations.

This being a new area where not many organizations or institutions have ventured in, yet we are in information age where information is being used in decision making, this is the time such a program should be introduced. Information goes through a process to become refined and during this process, information is distributed all over yet a challenge to many to manage it. This course therefore will be handy in helping professionals in organizing this information hence knowledge management.
