Students are asked to prepare a report analyzing current knowledge management systems in their organization or one of their choosing. Selecting your own organization is recommended due to the level of access you would have as an employee, but you also have the option to investigate a different organization if you would like. You can use any of the knowledge management models or frameworks discussed in class to structure your report.
You may wish to touch on some or all of the following issues: knowledge currently captured in the organization, any gaps or areas without sufficient infrastructure, any KM systems available, uptake by employees, and issues or challenges with the available system. Once you have outlined the knowledge management systems in place in the selected organization, you should make recommendations for the improvement of those systems. Your recommendations may include the introduction of new systems. Either way, briefly outline what additional knowledge would need to be captured. You will be expanding upon the findings/recommendations of this report in A3 – Portfolio. This assessment is structured as a report, meaning that you will need to include clear headings and subheadings, a table of contents, and an executive summary. You may wish to address the report to management and should pick a name for your KM consulting company. References should be formatted using APA style.
