SPECIAL ISSUE TWO: KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES: EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES, APPLICATIONS, SYSTEMS AND PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS

Publication outlet: INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF KNOWLEDGE AND LEARNING [Volume 5, Issue 6, 2009], http://www.inderscience.com/browse/index.php?journalCODE=ijkl

Knowledge management has been used as a high-promise business concept. In an era of business transition, the effective management of knowledge is proposed as a strategy that exploits the organizational intangible assets. However, the term of knowledge management has been used in order to describe many different applications. In some cases the tag of ‘knowledge management product’ is attached to several software programs purely for marketing reasons.

We recognize knowledge management as a socio-technical phenomenon where the basic social constructs such as person, team and organization require support from ICT applications. The ultimate objective of the special issue is to provide practical guidelines for applied knowledge management through the discussion of specific technologies.

For this reason we invite submissions that discuss a specific Knowledge Management Strategy which is fostered through the employment of emerging technologies.

The two key questions that will be answered from the overall special issue are:

* Which technologies to use for specific KM problems?

* Which strategy can guide the implementation of KM that corresponds to the application areas?

Application areas include, but are not limited to, the following:

ARTIFACT LEVEL

*                    Managing Documents

*                    Managing Metadata and Semantics

*                    Managing Taxonomies

INDIVIDUAL  LEVEL

*                    Constructing Yellow pages of experts

*                    Managing individual profiles

*                    Managing Tacit Knowledge

TEAM LEVEL

*                    Managing Workflows

*                    Managing Discussion Forums

*                    Exploiting Collaborative Work Systems

*                    Managing Team Dynamics

ORGANIZATIONAL LEVEL

*                    Building Best Practices

*                    Developing Knowledge Maps / Ontologies

*                    Managing Competencies

*                    Managing Organizational Memory

INTER – ORGANIZATIONAL LEVEL

*                    Managing inter-organizational network

*                    Managing Projects

*                    Future Technologies
