Abstract

Organizations increasingly understand that the knowledge of their employees has become one of the most important input factors. Many companies even acknowledge that sustainable competitive advantage can only result from superior knowledge bases. Consequently, knowledge management has become a crucial topic in almost every organization. In many cases, experts from information technology or information management play an important role in these efforts.

Given the increasing importance of knowledge management, the course "Corporate Knowledge Management” deals with the question of how the identification, acquisition, structuring, storage, distribution, and use of knowledge can be supported through information technology.

The following topics will be covered:

  • What is knowledge management?
  • Motivation and implications of knowledge management
  • Knowledge creation
  • Knowledge storage and retrieval
  • Knowledge transfer
  • Design principles of knowledge management systems
  • Use of knowledge management systems
