Knowledge Management

Knowledge Management (KM) is the process of capturing, distributing and effectively using knowledge and information. KM is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, capturing, evaluating, retrieving and sharing all of the organisational information and knowledge assets. These assets include documents, databases, policies, procedures and previously un-captured expertise and experience in individual workers.

Knowledge Sharing as a tool for the effective use of knowledge and information in organisation is a vital part in the Knowledge Management concept. 



VidenDanmark supports their members in the most creative and effective use of Knowledge and Information.

VidenDanmark facilitates workshops for professional development and networking, introduces inspiring speakers and keeps an eye on what is happening within the Knowledge Management field worldwide.​
