Title: Personal Knowledge Management
The Role of Web 2.0 Tools for Managing Knowledge at Individual and Organisational Levels
Author: Razmerita, Liana; Kirchner, Karhrin; Sudzina, Frantisek
Abstract: Purpose – This paper discusses new approaches for managing personal knowledge in the Web 2.0 era. We question whether Web 2.0 technologies (social software) are a real panacea for the challenges associated with the management of knowledge. Can Web2.0 reconcile the conflicting interests of managing organisational knowledge with personal objectives? Does Web 2.0 enable a more effective way of sharing and managing knowledge at the personal level? Design /methodology/approach – Theoretically deductive with illustrative examples. Findings – Web 2.0 plays a multifaceted role for communicating, collaborating, sharing and managing knowledge. Web 2.0 enables a new model of PKM that includes formal and informal communication, collaboration and social networking tools. This new PKM model facilitates interaction, collaboration and knowledge exchanges on the web and in organisations. Practical implications – Based on these findings professionals and scholars will gain a better understanding of the potential role of Web 2.0 technologies for harnessing and managing personal knowledge. The paper provides concrete examples of how Web 2.0 tools are currently used in organisations. Originality/value – As Web 2.0 has become integrated in our day-to-day activities, there is a need to further understand the relationship between Web 2.0 and Personal Knowledge Management (PKM).
