Description

Knowledge is a distinct key to competitive business advantage. Knowledge Management sensitizes you to the importance and practice of the development and management of non-tangible worth (principally human-based knowledge) in modern organizations. The need for reciprocal concern for both structures and processes is important for dealing with organizational change and development. Recognizing graduate needs expressed by industry, the development and application of both technical and people management skills within Knowledge Management environments is emphasised.

Critical discussion and analysis of key theoretical and practical aspects of knowledge management enhances problem solving and communication attributes valued within the profession.
