  2. UNDERSTANDING Knowledge Management "The capabilities by which communities within an organisation capture the knowledge that is critical to them, constantly improve it and make it available in the most effective manner to those who need it, so that they can exploit it creatively to add value as a normal part of their work" GlaxoSmithKline -------------------------------------- "Knowledge Management is the discipline of enabling individuals, teams and entire organisations to collectively and systematically create, share and apply knowledge, to better achieve their objectives" Ron Young, CEO/CKO Knowledge Associates International ------------------------------------------

  3. Knowledge Management POLICY OF IFAD “IFAD recognizes that knowledge management is the collection of systems, processes and procedures designed to acquire and share the intellectual and knowledge based assets of the organization and its stakeholders. This means sharing lessons learned from our own experiences, by capturing and using the insights and knowledge of others and by constantly reinventing ourselves in the light of evolving circumstances. IFAD recognizes the need for credible, authoritative and convincing evidence to underpin our programme and policy initiatives; the existence of extensive knowledge on rural poverty; and the need to develop our capacity and culture to absorb and contribute to knowledge” (IFAD 2007)

  4. Knowledge management leads to: • Access to the right (relevant) information and the right time to project stakeholders and project implementers • Use of information/ knowledge for enhanced project implementation and project management • Enhanced capacity of project staff to assimilate, document and share information and knowledge • Knowledge Management can support advocacy for better policy

  5. Importance of KM in IFAD projects • Knowledge plays a central role in operationalising the project strategy to achieve the project objectives. • KM also contributes significantly to Programme Management towards achieving project goals • KM for Advocacy and Policy dialogue • KM leads to providing timely information and knowledge to empower people in meeting their aspirations through the project

  6. Knowledge management components Knowledge Management (KM) envisages capturing, creating, sharing and managing knowledge. KM comprises of three components : (i) People - who create, share and use knowledge as part of their daily work and help shape a knowledge sharing organizational culture (ii) Processes - which include methods to acquire, create, organize, share and transfer knowledge to fit different situations and (iii) Technology - including the mechanisms to store and provide access to data, information, and knowledge that must be integrated with work to address their needs.

  7. HOW KM is done in IFAD/ projects? / IMPLEMENTATION OF KM components • Strengthening learning processes and knowledge-sharing • Equipping IFAD / projects with learning infrastructure • Fostering partnerships for enhanced learning and knowledge-sharing • Promoting a supportive knowledge-sharing and learning culture within the organisation

  8. LEARNING PROCESS includes: • Generation - of new information and knowledge from external sources on project components • Collection - of quantitative and qualitative data, experiences and learnings from the field as a result of project implementation. • Analysis and Systematic documentation of processes, success, learnings, impacts and challenges • Sharing knowledge – with various stakeholders in different forums by using different KS tools and methods • Dissemination of IFAD’s field knowledge with a larger audience.
