The lack of knowledge management (KM) has large impacts on an organization. The way KM is managed has implications on organizational culture, productivity, innovation and production sustainability. The lack of proper attention to KM can cause severe problems that can have both short term and long term consequences.
Good KM starts at the organizational culture level and extends all the way to operational priorities. By ensuring KM is accepted and welcomed in the roots of organizational culture, an organization is able to adapt to changes, challenges and potential problems with the full use of the organization's knowledge. From this ground level flows of knowledge and wisdom through departments, hierarchies, and even different geographical locations, can be utilized. Continuing further, good KM also integrates into daily operations to ensure that all (or at least most) knowledge gained is deposited into the company, not just into individuals.
