Research Programme on Knowledge Management

About the Programme

Knowledge Management is the systematic leveraging of information and expertise to improve organizational and operational innovation, responsiveness, productivity and competency.

The objective of the GDRC programme on Knowledge Management is to explore the construct of knowledge management within the context of the current explosion of information, and systems that have enabled greater access to the information.

Currently, GDRC is focussing on packaging lessons learnt in knowledge management when carrying out GDRC's programmes and initiatives. This is particularly the case when presenting information on GDRC's website, or in preparing publications/resource kits.

Together with the GDRC research programmes on Information Design and ICTs for Development, this programme is developed through the GDRC Learning Lab.
