The purpose of this assignment is to help you clarify some fundamental concepts of knowledge management – sometimes we don’t know what we think about a subject until we write about it, so the idea is to work through the fundamental concepts of KM through writing. After reading the first sets of materials (weeks 1 – 3), briefly summarize what you’ve learned, especially noting new insights and how KM might affect your career aspiration.
You obviously can’t repeat everything you’ve read, so focus on the learning that had the most impact on you. Use in-text citations and a reference list in APA format. Be sure to put all direct quotations in quotation marks and note the source, limiting direct quotes to one or two short sentences or phrases. Aim to keep your paper at 1,000 – 1,500 words. Submit by uploading your essay.
Suggested sections for the paper:
• Brief background ( this part cannot be too long)
• Insights learned from readings (be sure to give some attention to Nonaka, SECI, Hislop) – provide examples
o Do not just repeat what is in the articles
• Application to your own career or career goals
o I want to be a data analyst or data management as my career
• References (do not count in word count)
• It’s a good idea to give section titles within the paper. Section titles help the reader make sense of an essay.
