#SLAtalk Roundup: Get to Know Knowledge Management

“If only HP knew what HP knows, we would be three times more productive.”

When Lew Platt, then the CEO of Hewlett-Packard, spoke those words in the mid-1990s, he planted the seeds of the modern knowledge management movement. Many companies embraced it, investing millions of dollars in KM initiatives. But today, more than 20 years into the KM revolution, knowledge management is still a mystery to many of the librarians and information professionals who are best positioned to lead such projects.

On July 22, SLA hosted a Twitter chat to help demystify knowledge management. Members of SLA’s Knowledge Management Division were on hand to help answer questions, which ranged from “What KM strategies or techniques do you find most valuable?” to “Which KM resources do you use to sharpen your skills?”
