A Committee-Based Model for Supporting Organizational Knowledge Management.
Miller, Les L.; Nilakanta, Sree
Organizations are looking at ways to manage their information resources. Both the capture and the use of data created by the organization have come under scrutiny. Part of the concern comes from their desire to enhance the business process and part comes from the explosion of data available to any organization. In this context the role of committees is being examined both as consumers and producers of information. This paper looks at making corporate knowledge more useful to organizations by focusing on supporting committees. The paper presents a knowledge management model and briefly looks at the prototypes used to test the feasibility of the model. The model takes a committee-based approach and uses committee meetings as the primary data collection point. The assumption is that more traditional forms of data (databases, data warehouses, and report libraries) are easy to generate and the major concern is to incorporate them in with the knowledge management process. Includes one table and five figures: relationship between components and organizational memory; block diagram of a typical problem domain; capture phase of the recorder; current capture tool screen; and organization of post capture tool in current implementation.
