Concept Practice Challenge
Synopsis Effective development, distribution and deployment of knowledge are the cornerstones of success in the economy of today and tomorrow. Therefore, many organisations have begun to implement knowledge management programmes, building 'knowledge add-ons' to the existing organisational structures.
    Knowledge management has many facets. KALIF has been concerned with knowledge management projects that
  • attempt to financially value the intellectual assets of an organisation;
  • aim to make explicit and disclose the knowledge available in an organisation, typically through intranet technology;
  • derive a corporate 'knowledge strategy' from the corporate business strategy;
  • try to improve the knowledge-sharing attitude of employees to create a 'knowledge friendly culture'.
The KALIF methodology focuses on a particular aspect of knowledge management: the effective exchange of day-to-day experiences of co-workers in situations where this could benefit an organisation (or cluster of organisations), but where all kinds of obstacles hinder the spontaneous emergence of knowledge exchange.
(Kelleher et al. 2001, pp. 18f.).
Reference The KALIF concept of  knowledge management is further explained in the final publication (Kelleher et al. 2001, pp. 27-35).
