PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT AS AN ICEBREAKER - Motivating Contributions to Knowledge Management Systems

Harald Kjellin, Terese Stenfors-Hayes

Abstract

Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) includes a set of techniques that individuals can use to acquire, create and share knowledge without relying on technical or financial support from the employer. The purpose of this study is to find indications of detectable value from experimental implementations of PKM systems in a number of organisations. The study includes 75 implementations of a PKM system in 75 different organisations and evaluations of them all. The results from interviewing all employees that participated in the study showed that: 1) The implementation of PKM does not require extensive resources 2) The effects can be measured from a personal level, and 3) The employees assessed the positive value of the descriptions of personalised knowledge.
