Knowledge Ecosystem 

Knowledge management is complex. Not difficult but complex. Knowledge-sharing, on the other hand, is simple but often ignored, assumed as a given but without structure.

This presentation offers an insight into this field. The content was provided by colleagues at the UK Government’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) .

The presentation describes the knowledge ecosystem as a self-sustaining environment that holds complex networks, where

  • knowledge is transferred from person to person, and where
  • networks co-exist, are co-dependent and are co-evolutionary.

The presentation explains the difference between explicit and tacit knowledge, and goes on to briefly cover the roles involved, the processes and technology.
