Knowledge Management (KM) in Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) (open access)

Knowledge Management (KM) in Radioactive Waste Management (RWM)

By writing this paper we tried to illustrate the practical difference between KM initiatives in R&D and industry. However, the overlapping of the approaches at some certain stages are visible. The information management has been considered as an essential part of the knowledge management in both of organizations. The capture of the critical knowledge in both organizations remains a main issue even if the selected methods are different. The coaching & mentoring program which are well implemented at the IRE (HZDR), are may be difficult to realize/accomplish at the BGE. However, the pilot coaching program is planned at the BGE, but currently not available due to the “young” founding date in 2017. One of the main concerns of the BGE as an implementer, is the motivation and encouragement of all employees to share and distribute their knowledge and benefit from each other.

The Impact of Cyber Addiction on Information Overload and Workplace Performance (open access)

The Impact of Cyber Addiction on Information Overload and Workplace Performance

Cyber addiction refers to the excessive use of internet and cyber application leading to adverse outcomes such as stress, distractions, reduced motivation levels, and challenges in task orientation. Uncontrolled consumption of the internet leads to information overload that impact productivity and workplace performance (Griffiths, 2010). In such cases, the ubiquitous availability of information can lead to IT-related stress where users derive a reduced sense of satisfaction (Diomidous et al. 2016). People who frequently access the internet can experience various issues, which encompass anxiety, depression, and self-image challenges. Physically, affected individuals experience disrupted sleep patterns, irritability and high levels of fatigue. Social networking sites increase the risk of addiction and online dependency, aspects associated with low levels of productivity (Hoq, 2014). As illustrated in fig 1, the paper hypothesizes that there is a direct relationship between information overload and workplace performance and job satisfaction. The assumption is that cyber addiction worsens the problem of information overload, which in return, impacts information behavior and use and workplace/job performance (Riaz & Qureshi, 2019). The study addresses the following research questions: What is the impact of cyber addiction on workplace performance? What are the relationships between cyber addiction, information workload and information behavior and …

Soft Skills Development in Knowledge Management

Soft skills have become increasingly important in the workplace, particularly in knowledge management (KM). Developing a knowledge culture in an organization depends on the soft skills of leaders. KM literature, however, does not often discuss the development and teaching of soft skills that can facilitate the success of knowledge management in organizations. This presentation will present the challenge of teaching and learning soft skills as well as a proposed framework to address those challenges.

Changing Landscape of Scholarly Communications: Open Access (open access)

Changing Landscape of Scholarly Communications: Open Access

The 17th International Conference on Knowledge Management was held in the historic city of Potsdam, Germany. Since the conference was among the first post-pandemic face to face conferences, the overall theme of the 17th edition of the ICKM conference rightly focused on “Knowledge, Uncertainty and Risks: From individual to global scale” at different levels of analysis and agency. This document highlighted one of the panels and the panelists argue that open access to scholarly knowledge production should be the modus operandi in the time and age we live in. Open access to knowledge is critical not just to accelerate advances in finding solutions to societal issues, but also to meet the growing expectations around higher education institutions’ social responsibilities in times of uncertainties.

Information Representation and Knowledge Organization in Cultural Heritage Organizations in Arab Gulf Counties: A case study of Alqabas Archive (open access)

Information Representation and Knowledge Organization in Cultural Heritage Organizations in Arab Gulf Counties: A case study of Alqabas Archive

The goal of this study is to explore how information is currently organized in digital cultural heritage collections in Arabian Gulf countries. it focused on Alqabas – a Kuwaiti institution with a strong reputation of early adopter of digital archiving and developer of major digital collections in Arab Gulf counties, accumulated experience in knowledge management. The mixed-methods study combined semi-structured interview of the Alqabas archive manager and in-depth content analysis of a sample of metadata records that represent items in Alqabas digital collections for accuracy, completeness, consistency, use of knowledge organization systems. The study reveals high metadata quality overall but lack of consistency for many metadata fields, explained in part by the absence of metadata creation guidelines and professional training for metadata creators. This indicates potential barriers to metadata interoperability in an aggregated environment for future projects similar to DPLA or Europeana.

COVID19: Mask Misinformation and Social Noise (open access)

COVID19: Mask Misinformation and Social Noise

Disinformation and misinformation are pervasive in unregulated social-media environments, which are used habitually for obtaining news. Fenn et al in 2019 stated that “Given that people tend to share interesting information to maintain social relationships or to manage their impressions, information that receives more likes may subsequently be shared more often” (Fenn, Ramsay, Kantner, Pezdek, & Abed, 2019, p.133) Recent studies also revealed that misinformation from politicians and celebrities has increased in recent years which lead to more engagement on Twitter (Brennen, et al. 2020 ). There has been a lot of misinformation pertaining to COVID-19 masks on Twitter. Due to the misinformation, many people might not believe in the effectiveness of masks. Even though studies have shown the effectiveness of wearing masks in different countries (Lyu and Wehby, 2020). Not wearing masks affects people's health and indirectly increases the spread of COVID-19. Studies of social noise and misinformation cases on social media are needed, specifically focusing on how social noise influences and contributes to the spread of misleading and possibly harmful messages.

Workgroup KM  Certification (ISO  30401/DIN SPEC  91443) (open access)

Workgroup KM Certification (ISO 30401/DIN SPEC 91443)

New standards (ISO 30401 and DIN SPEC 91443) provide new momentum for knowledge management initiatives. Certification becomes a priority to demonstrate KM-proficiency on an organizational level to external partners (customers, suppliers, future employees) as well as to create a sense of urgency within organizations, in particular among organizational leadership. In this workshop, a joint working group of two independent communities and a research organisation, the Association of Knowledge Management for German speaking countries and the Federal Association of Intellectual Capital Statements e.V. presents the framework of DIN SPEC 91443 which was designed specifically for SMEs to operationalize the KM requirements of ISO 30401. The general objective of the workshop is to reflect on suitability of various instruments of KM, in particular the Intellectual Capital Statement – Made in Germany, to deliver on the standards requirements. Looking at some practical cases, an early-stage concept of auditing structures and procedures will be discussed. As a result of the workshop, the organizers aim to propose an auditing framework to certify knowledge management systems as a follow up.
