Knowledge Management and Organizational Memories

Knowledge Management (KM) is one of the key prog
ress factors in organizations. It aims at capturing
explicit and tacit knowledge of an organization in order to facilitate the access, sharing, and reuse of
that knowledge as well as creation of new knowledge and organizational learning. KM must be guide
by a strategic vision to fulfill its primary organizational objectives: improving knowledge sharing and
cooperative work inside the organization; disseminating best practices; improving relationships with
the external world; preserving past knowledge of
the organization for reuse; improving the quality of
projects and innovations; anticipating the evolution of the external environment; and preparing for
unexpected events and managing urgency and crisis situations. One approach for KM consists of

a corporate memory or organizational memory (OM). Several techniques can be considered,
according to the type of organization, its needs and its culture: knowledge
based approaches,
based approaches, workflow
based approches, CBR
based approaches
, CSCW and
cooperative approaches, ontology
based approaches, corporate Semantic Webs, Web
approaches, agent
based approaches, distributed OMs,etc.

Several scenarios of KM can be tackled through OMs: project memory, skills management,
communities of
practice, strategic or technological watch,etc. The workshop aims at gathering
researchers from multiple disciplines, industrial participants and students in order to discuss models,
methodologies, techniques and application scenarios useful for building,

using, managing, evaluating
and evolving corporate memories.
