Get Smart About Knowledge Management

Friday, January 20, 2017

What is your organization’s most important commodity? Knowledge. And effective knowledge management and sharing can be the key to enhancing employee performance and fostering innovation.

Talent professionals have a major role in enabling access to critical knowledge and expertise in real time, wherever and whenever work gets done. More than just repositories of content, emerging knowledge management (KM) practices include fostering collaboration and access to experts. KM also requires a multidisciplinary approach In which knowledge is directly and systemically integrated into the workplace, often as a function of the job itself.

But many organizations don’t know where to start. ATD’s Knowledge Management Certificate can help you identify knowledge management opportunities and align them with your business strategies. You also will learn how to select the right people and tools for implementing knowledge management in your organization.
