MANAGEMENT

James L. Emmer




July 12, 2009

CONVERGENCE



This trend discusses how knowledge
management has transcended business
concepts into the international arena as
companies expand


Consideration of other cultures, it’s citizens and
communities as to how it impacts the
establishment of knowledge management
processes for a business


(Creech, 2005)

TRANSITION FROM STORAGE TO RETRIEVAL



This trend in Knowledge Management depicts
how storage of knowledge has moved from
traditional methods of process storage into
effective knowledge based information systems
allowing effective communication about
organizational processes, methods, models,
and other forms of information that benefit
employees in a company (Creech, 2005)

OPEN SOURCE / OPEN CONTENT



This trend in Knowledge Management depicts
how the availability of knowledge is obtained
through legal methods. Sharing knowledge that
is not confidential to any specific aspect of a
business is allowed to be shared with the rest
of the world. This trend has assisted many
smaller businesses to establish successful
processes pertinent to their success (Brian
Donnellan
, 2005)

ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT



This trend in Knowledge Management depicts how
establishment of processes utilize effective and
scientific management practices to research
projects specific to implementing an effective
knowledge based program


Methods and practices are documented and
analyzed in an effective research based approach
to provide valuable data about success or failure
of the program (Nick
Salafsky
, 2009)


ADOPTION OF DIFFERENT MODALITIES



This trend in Knowledge Management depicts how
organizations are more effective when they govern
rather than manage resources for knowledge
sharing. The processes are established through
guidelines and business direction but continue to
grow and be run by the organizations employees
as it matures (Creech, 2005)


Governance proves lower turnover rates, labor
productivity, lower costs and improved customer
satisfaction (Ibis Associates , 2009)
