Information Shared is Knowledge Acquired
Lillian Nabwire, Student (MBA), Kenya
Sharing of ideas, opinions and thoughts is one element that every manager must embrace. This way one gets to learn much more from fellow managers.
Knowledge acquisition, storage and dissemination is an important element in every organization. It is acknowledged broadly that knowledge is one of the most important resources of an organization. Awareness about that is what keeps managers going.
"Information shared is knowledge acquired". Managers always need to be informed and to inform creating a bigger picture of the importance of communication in organizations. Loopholes in organizations can only be identified through sharing information with the relevant stakeholders and/or concerned parties.
Sharing information is then the beginning of an organization's knowledge management process. The practice of organizing, storing and sharing of vital information for the benefit of every individual is key to the success and performance of any organization. It is important for organizations to share information across internal organizational boarders. Also they need to think about what will happen with the knowledge later on in the process: who will use it, how it can be shared with the target group within organizations and how the information will be codified.
