Dr. Parag Sanghani
A Study of Knowledge Management Practices in Selected Industries in India
This event took place on Thursday 15 March 2007 at 14:00

As markets shift, uncertainty dominates, technologies proliferate, competitors multiply and products and services become obsolete, successful companies are characterised by their ability to consistently create, disseminate and use new knowledge. With the rising importance of knowledge in the recent times, knowledge management has gained worldwide attention. Several developments like globalisation, advances in ICT, and a knowledge-centric view of the organisation led to this recognition and popularity (Prusak, 2001). Organisations have recognised that KM is a source of competitiveness and there is proliferation of knowledge-based products and services.

With increase in information technology usage, many organisations have started KM initiatives in India. Some of Indian IT majors are winning few prestigious knowledge management awards like MAKE awards for better management of knowledge. This presentation highlights KM in the Indian context. The presentation offers an overview about knowledge management research carried out by Dr. Sanghani and shows a framework developed by him for KM technology tool selection.
