Educating Knowledge Managers: A Competence-Based Approach

Abstract: … In this work, we propose a model of individual knowledge management competence to support the education of knowledge managers … The model explains Knowledge Management competence as specific combinations of presumed Knowledge Management-related activities and the individual capabilities required to perform them. … The proposed model suggests not a single definition of Knowledge Management competence, but multiple profiles based distinct understandings of what comprises Knowledge Management.
