Since the early 1990s, the importance of Knowledge Management (KM) to create an organization's competitive advantage has been widely recognized worldwide in the government, public and private sectors for the codification of information and knowledge, the processing of knowledge (the creation, capture, storage and conversion of knowledge from implicit to explicit), to the reporting and management of intellectual capital (IC), innovation and learning capability in firms and organizations.
KM is an interdisciplinary and complex area of study by integrating technology-centered and human-centered approaches from the perspective of system science.
The KM Group of the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has been most active in this field in Hong Kong as shown by our high level teaching and training activities, consultancy to the government and local community, applied research and our strong international collaboration.
The Knowledge Management Research Centre (KMRC) will be the unique of its kinds in tertiary institutes in the Region including mainland China and Asia-pacific.
