Knowledge management (KM) is the art of transforming information and intellectual assets into enduring value for an organization's clients and its people. This allows for reusing intellectual capital, enabling better decision making and creating the conditions for innovation. KM provides people, processes and technology to help knowledge flow to the right people, at the right time, so they can act more efficiently, effectively and creatively.
The Kent State Knowledge Management program is advised by world-class KM experts with leadership experience from corporations including, among others, Accenture, BP Oil, General Electric, and Microsoft; academic institutions such as the University of Illinois at Chicago and Kent State University; and the U.S. government including the U.S. Army and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The guidance provided by the world-class Advisory Board is an integral part of the program success due to the Board’s diverse academic and professional expertise.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects increasing demand for jobs in fields related to knowledge management.
