Knowledge Management is fast catching up as a tool to build up competencies within the organization. KM issues can be broadly classified as people, process, technology and strategy issues. However there are enough proofs to show that these issues are contingent. India with it's highly educated population and different historical background provides as an interesting case. This blog seeks to discuss KM issues in relation to India.

Hello All,

Hi Sarup,
Firstly: Congrats for being selected in such a nice orgn.
As a KM Consultant you need to know about your company business, solution mkt, competitors, partners and ofcourse about your employees. Know where the knowledge is flowing inside your company and try to map it. You can use many tools available but mind you... KM is not technology oriented...Technology alone can not withstand the KM.
Did it make sense??? ;o)

Cheers

Hi Sreeharsha,

even I was wondering.. what qualifications does one need to become a KM consultant? I plan to join an organization as a recruitment (IT) consultant. Would it be of any help if I ultimately want to become a KM consultant? I am doing my M.C.A and I am in my fourth sem.I want to start my career in the right direction so that every experience of mine can be a relevent contribution. though I am doing M.C.A , but I am more interested in the field of H.R (IT). Can you please suggest me more options as well, as to how should I proceed in my career? Do I need to do an M.B.A after my M.C.A if I want to aim for managerial positions in HR (IT) ??
I reside in India , but have a strong inclination towards finding a job in U.S or Australia ( Australia more preferred). I think I am utterly confused at this point of time. Please help. Suggestions from all other people are welcome. I'll be greatful for your valuable advice.
