KnowledgeBoard , 153 – 03 September 2008
– Your Global KM Community

Dear Reader,

Since last month’s article profiling IKT, there has been a lot of interest in knowledge transfer – and lots more parts of it left to explore. So is running a mini-series looking at different aspects of KT, starting this month with SME creative partnerships in ‘Think small to think big in creative KT’.
On the technology side, ‘Content management Vs knowledge management’ questions why companies are still using web-based CMS to manage knowledge-based processes when they weren’t designed to handle it.
Overload can happen to us humans as well. Peter Bond looks at whether KM can help combat workplace stress, while in the September blog spot, Rendt Gorter looks at whether an information glut is leading to KM chaos.
Finally, bringing things back to order, ‘Target marketing through KM’ looks at how by effectively turning your marketing department into a knowledge management team, you can create more targeted and profitable strategies.

Kind Regards,

Louise Druce
