Tapping into knowledge is always a challenge for KM practitioners so this month, turns its attentions to turning tacit knowledge into more tangible benefits.
‘Five steps to developing emotional intelligence’ looks at how by knowing ourselves better, we can better manage our knowledge, while ‘Logical applications for mind mapping software’ discusses how IT can be used as a sort of memory stick for the brain.
Meanwhile, ‘The database diet’ looks at the differences between nearline and data archiving in the data warehouse to trim down information and improve performance. Archiving is also in the spotlight, along with museums and libraries, in our October blog, as Paul Corney continues our series on knowledge transfer by looking at the next steps in an MLA pilot project.
Finally, for those of you new to knowledge management or looking for a quick summary of the key elements of KM, Vernon Prior has compiled a comprehensive glossary of terms.

Kind Regards,

Louise Druce
