Wisdom Management: Can Wisdom be Managed?
Sudheendra G. Mudikeri, Management Consultant, India, Member
In the discussion of the by Anand, the conclusion was reached that the highest level of knowledge is Wisdom.
That then leads to a logical quest of what's next to Knowledge Management (KM) and I believe it's WISDOM MANAGEMENT (WM).
My suggested definition of Wisdom is: "Knowledge put to profitable application". Knowledge has been traditionally classified into TACIT and EXPLICIT forms.
Wisdom also needs classification in terms of nuggets relevant to the area of application. Some ideas:
- Wisdom contributors may be area specific or work specific etc to an organization.
- Then we have generalists and specialists who can cater to essential knowledge.
- The people who pay for such knowledge must be enablers to convert these bits and pieces of knowledge into wisdom nuggets as applicable to their workplace.
- I am also thinking in terms of classification like Perennial Wisdom and Situational Wisdom.
