The Knowledge Management Strategy Map

brainKnowledge management and strategy go hand in hand; this article shows models of a typical strategy map.

“A strategy map is a pretty well established way of mapping out the strategy of a company in a visual way, The approach was invented by Bill Kaplan… A strategy map can be linked to Balanced Scorecard, and can be used to explain why a company is choosing the initiatives that it has.”

Your company’s vision and strategy will determine what Knowledge Management looks like.  Knowledge Management specifies the ideas and goals that aid the strategy of the business. 

Advantages of this type of strategy map:

  • Helps the KM team top focus on those interventions that most directly support business strategy
  • Makes it clear to the business how KM will help in delivering that strategy

Take a look at the model strategy map on the original post.
