The Future of Knowledge-Management

For years, people have been searching for the answers to these questions: “Is the current form of Knowledge-Management enough? Does it fill it original purpose?”

Nowadays, Knowledge-Management is highly concentrated in connecting people to documents. Tools like Microsoft SharePoint, and newcomers such as, Huddle and Box, all assist your company with managing your document content and aid you to reach them when needed.

However, is it enough, according to the social revolution of 2012, that we are witnessing? How many times have you found yourself looking at the document, but still unsure of how to use it for occupational purposes?

In the past year, I have spoken to more than 100 C-level executives from different verticals, like Hardware, Pharma, Consulting Firms, Software and more, asking them, “What is the next generation of Knowledge Management in your opinion?”

I’ve received some intriguing answers, but one stood out above all:

Knowledge Management in 2012 should be about connecting ‘people to people’ – after all, the knowledge lays within the people.

The new emerging market of social business software is attempting to accomplish this at the moment. By providing a platform for employees to communicate, one can hope the right people will be connected.

But are the new platforms justified for turning their backs to the traditional KM systems?

Personally, I believe the truth is a combination of the two methods. I think we need to find a way to use these superb document management systems to help the employees get the suitable information and coworker in order to successfully perform their jobs.

If you yearn to take it to the next level, you can use all of the excellent data sources the company has accumulated from KM systems, emails, CRM’s, HR systems, and more. Add intelligence to the process, and you now have the ultimate Knowledge Management future.
