PKM2009 - 1st Workshop on Personal Knowledge Management (PKM)

Knowledge Management (KM) deals with creating and exchanging knowledge within groups of persons in organisational contexts. The potentials and needs of the individual are often not in the focus of KM efforts, although obviously the individual as knowledge bearer, -user and -creator is naturally the most essential element of knowledge management. The main goal of PKM is make the individual more productive - and thereby also the organisation as a whole.
PKM investigates the use of methods and tools to amplify the abilities of the individual to knowledge worker.

Typical tasks of knowledge work include recalling previously learned knowledge faster (or at all) when it is required, modelling personal knowledge and beliefs with external modeling tools to derive new insights, and dealing with large quantities or with high complexity. Typical management problems in PKM are e.g. time and task management, matching work habits with fluctuations of personal productivity, investing time into personal learning and PKM improvements but also keeping the work-life balance.

Research questions are: How can an individual effectively and efficiently use external tools to tackle these challenges? How can the individual support, structure and improve his personal knowledge management? How can the conflict between personal goals (e.g. motivation) and the goals of an organisation (e.g. efficient knowledge sharing, productivity) be tackled or even resolved?.
