Personalising organisational knowledge and organisationalising personal knowledge
Purpose ‐ This paper aims to study the relationship between personal knowledge management (PKM) and organisational knowledge management (OKM). Design/methodology/approach ‐ Based on the proposed framework of PKM and OKM, the author has analytically modelled and studied the strategies of linking the two to manage personal knowledge for organisational purposes. Findings ‐ Applying a framework categorising PKM and OKM from two dimensions ‐ knowledge properties and management perspectives ‐ the author proposes the strategies of personalising organisational knowledge (POK) and organisationalising personal knowledge (OPK) as the effective linkage between PKM and OKM. Integrating a knowledge management system (KMS) into the framework, the author determines the optimal level of KMS in facilitating the implementation of POK and OPK strategies. Research limitations/implications ‐ Future research may relax some of the assumptions and empirically verify the analytical results. Practical implications ‐ The research provides guidelines for matching investments in information technology with appropriate knowledge management strategies. Originality/value ‐ With a unique approach, the paper contributes to the missing link between PKM and OKM.
