Knowledge Management (KM) is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, capturing, evauating, retrieving, and sharing all of an enterprise's information assets. These assets may include dayabasess, documents, policies, procedures, and previously uncaptured expertise, experience and social neworks in individual workers.
The MSc in Knowledge Management (KM) programme is designed for students from both public and private sector organisations that utilises human and knowledge resources to contribute directly to its survivability and profitability.
The following highlights the key features of the KM programme:
· It is the only fulll-fledged KM graduate programme in Singapore
· Blend theory wth industry practice with inputs from the members of the Knowledge Management Society of Singapore (KMS)
· Emphasis on creativity innovation, which is critical for today's organisations to prepare professionals to champion and implement KM initiatives in their organisations
· A holistic approach to KM that emphasises the importance of people in an organisation
Employment is available with the private sector and government institutions, both in Singapore and around the globe. While the strategies and approaches to implementing KM vary between organisations, it is impossible to identify some generic roles that have been created to implement KM initiatives. It is important to note that particularly in small organisations, where the size does not warrant full time positions, KM responsibilities are added to existing roles. Similarly, as KM is a multi-disciplinary subject, many jobs do not necessarily use the word Knowledge in their titles.
