Welcome to the Philadelphia Chapter of the Knowledge Management Group. KMG was formed in 1999 to provide a forum for understanding and applying the ideas of Knowledge Management.
- The Knowledge Management Group (KMG) was formed to address the needs of area organizations in managing knowledge assets. Knowledge assets include intellectual capital (e.g., what employees know, patents), procedural knowledge contained in documents and administrative structures, and knowledge embedded in information systems.
- Goals of the KMG
- Knowledge management includes activities related to the creation, capture, organization, maintenance, retrieval, and use of organizational knowledge to promote improved decision-making and performance. KMG’s goal is to promote the sharing of KM best practices, to provide a forum for group problem solving on KM problems, and to encourage networking and professional collaboration in the area of KM.
