The Encarta Dictionary defines knowledge management as the organisation of intellectual resources and information systems within a business environment. Sounds pretty simple, right? Take a moment, though, and think about all the information that each person has in their brain. That’s a lot of knowledge!

Wherever there are humans working together for one goal, there is knowledge to be harvested, stored, and dispensed as needed.

Time Management

Personal time management skills are essential for professional success in any workplace.
