Knowledge Management and the Learning College
Treat, Tod; Kristovich, Sharon; Henry, Michael
Community College Journal, v75 n2 p42-46 Oct-Nov 2004
Society today is facing unprecedented challenges. Organizations are facing internal and external pressures from globalization, changing technologies, reassessment of mission and values, changing demographics and competition. Such pressures are indicative of a transformation from an industrial society to a knowledge society. Organizations can maximize their ability to adapt to rapidly changing environments by implementing knowledge management systems that encourage information sharing, efficient access and flow. In addition, knowledge systems aid in the conversion of the organization's tacit knowledge to explicit knowledge in a form that is easier to share and learn. A true learning college can use such systems to effectively document what is learned. This article discusses how technology helps Parkland College create systems to meet student and institutional needs through information sharing.
