Advanced study of contemporary knowledge management: cost estimating methods, development of enterprise-level strategies, structure of strategic leadership in managing intellectual capital and competitive intelligence.
As a result of completing this course, students will be able to:
1. Recognize and evaluate key differences among data, information, knowledge, and wisdom
2. Analyze how dynamic intellectual capital competes in a knowledge-based economy
3. Trace how organizations generate, codify, and transfer knowledge through their KM roles, responsibilities, work processes, gap analyses, and strategies
4. Develop a cost estimate, by Monte Carlo simulation, of the KM practices and technologies used by organizations to improve performance
5. Advise an organization on how to combat corporate amnesia by relating organizational cultures and micro cultures, and social networks, to behaviors that inspire trust
6. Establish a clear link among KM, innovation, reuse of knowledge, mentoring, and systems engineering while preventing mishaps and poor decision-making in an organization
7. Explain how knowledge is embedded in all aspects of systems engineering, and define a learning organization
8. Apply Web 2.0, KM 2.0, Entity Extraction, Recommender Systems, Collaborative Filtering, and Content Filtering, and exercise the k-Nearest Neighbors (k-NN) algorithm
9. Research, develop, articulate, write, and advocate for a formal executive-level KM Strategy
EMSE 6507 advances the content of EMSE 6505 and EMSE 6506 to achieve practical application of the student's learning to creation of an executive enterprise knowledge management strategy for an existing enterprise/company.
