If you would like to make an initial assessment of your organisation and/or teams orientation and readiness for knowledge management, please take around 15 minutes to complete the simple multi-choice questionairre below.
This Knowledge Management Assessment is is a simple web based knowledge survey tool to assess the knowledge orientation of an organisation and provide an indicator of how advanced an organisation is in understanding and implementing knowledge management.
As per the figure above, there are three distinct stages in the knowledge management journey of an organisation. To use the mountaineering metaphor
- still at the base camp
- knowledge aware and
- knowledge leveraging.
Each stage has its own characteristics and resource requirements.
The web based survey poses some questions to assess where your team or organisation might be positioned in this model and where it should focus.
