Knowledge management is about much more than databases or other technology used to store knowledge.
Knowledge management is also about accessing the social capital generated by the trust, goodwill and sharing among staff in an organisation. Knowledge management is a key to the development of organisational capabilities that will lead to high-performing organisations.
John Mitchell & Associates is promoting the examination of knowledge management in the vocational education sector in Australia. In particular, we encourage the use of communities of practice for generating and disseminating knowledge.
