Synopsis

The main objective of knowledge management and organisational learning is to provide students with the insights and skills to facilitate, in their managerial and leadership roles, higher levels of organisational effectiveness, efficiency, competitiveness and cooperativeness in emerging knowledge-based markets. This course examines the rise of the knowledge-intensive organisation and its broad relationship to the new demands of the knowledge economy. Key elements of the course consider the nature and purpose of knowledge, knowledge work, and learning within and across organisations. These connections form the basis for having purposeful knowledge management and organisational learning strategies and systems for developing high performance knowledge and learning organisations. Current and prospective managers and leaders are introduced to essential knowledge management and organisational learning principles. This will help them move toward a more strategic use of knowledge and learning in organisations. Students will work together on a professional project that showcases their ability to examine and provide advice on a relevant knowledge management and (or) organisational learning process.
