Head of KM, TotalFinaElf
KM Professionals have moved beyond discussing theory and possibility into the next steps of hard, practical application. Decreased staffing levels, mobile workforces and the growing complexity of data structures are only a few of the trends that have seen KM graduate from ideal world theory to business critical necessity.
Today's KM professionals understand that knowledge assets reside in all corners of their organisations - employees' heads, desk files, databases, storage rooms and, commonly, the collective minds of employees past. Moreover, it is now accepted that not acting on social and cultural aspects both directly or indirectly contributes to redundant processes, inefficient business practices and decreased profits. It is now critical for organisations to quickly identify, store and act on these knowledge assets before the information, and the opportunities, are lost.
Adding to the increased speed of KM adoption are the rapid advancement in data structures: photos, audio streams, movie files, demanding multi-media formats... The increasing complexity of how data is stored and administered introduces an extra dimension of complexity into the governance of modern data, which is challenging KM professionals to ensure the technical sophistication of their policies and practices.
