Knowledge Management and the Learning College
Community College Journal Volume 75, Number 2, ISSN 1067-1803
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.
