AKMG MISSION

The Army Knowledge Management Group’s (AKMG) mission is to make the Australian Army’s “Formal Knowledge”

sources visible, accessible and available to the Australian Defence Organisation (ADO), to our Allies and Industry

Partners in the wider environment.

Key Challenges

? Establish and enforce metadata standards

? Focusing and enabling the search? Focusing the leadership? Knowledge Integration

METADATA ENVIRONMENT

Optional – Tailored Repository Level

Mandatory - Army Knowledge Domain Inclusion Requirement

Mandatory - Essential 6 Elements AGLS Compliance

Page 8: Greg Jolley & Lorna Hooper

Recordkeeping Metadata Standard &Guidelines

? Structured information

? Context, content and structure of recordsand their management through time

? Structured or semi-structured information

? Identify, authenticate and contextualiserecords; and the people, processes andsystems that create, manage, maintainand use them.

Page 9: Greg Jolley & Lorna Hooper

? The use of structured and consistentmetadata will assist the department inmeeting legislative requirements andbusiness needs by:? ensuring that adequate contextual information? about transactions is recorded and linked to the? relevant records? discovery and retrieval of records? access to records? the timely transfer of inactive records? ensuring vital records and records of continuing

value are retained when new systems areimplemented

? data migration and other preservation needs? auditing processes and? local workflow.

SHARE POINT

SHARE POINT

Share Point & the AKD are LINKED

Page 21: Greg Jolley & Lorna Hooper

Integrating the Knowledge Management Structure of Sharepoint with the Knowledge Management Process of Army Knowledge Management Group

The Army Knowledge Domain (AKD) as the collective “Shop Front” for the Australian Defence Forces “Land Formal Knowledge Sources” is an enduring functionality. The content of the AKD is a “Capability Brick”.

? Land Warfare Doctrine, ? Observations, Insights & Lessons & ? Multi Media Training Products

The AKMG underpins the training and employment of the members of the ADF.

Share Point is a Portal and Collaborative Workspace application and a solution.

Applications and solutions will always change.

Page 22: Greg Jolley & Lorna Hooper

Information Overload is not the problem. Inability to make sense/lack of structure & coherence of the Overload needs resolution.

The Army Knowledge Management Group (AKMG) has a legislative requirement to make the Army’s Formal Knowledge Sources visible. AKMG must ensure that the Authority that an Instructor shares in passing their knowledge to their students is current, accessible, available in their required format. To guarantee this outcome, the AKMG employs structured Knowledge Management strategies to ensure that knowledge seekers are not overwhelmed and misled by the wealth of electronic information available on the Defence Restricted Network (DRN) and the World Wide Web (WWW).

Share Point provides a WIKI and Web 2.0 collaborative engagement tools. The purpose and consequence of these features is that content is created. Share Point does not appear to provide automated structured content creation. This is not necessary in a “Blogosphere”environment since not all content is valid and enduring. Knowledge that gains currency, robustness and credibility in the blogosphere will endure to become an Authoritative formal source of knowledge after it has been analysed and validated via the SME and CAL process. Throughout the journey, the piece of knowledge needs to be tracked.

The AKD provides the underpinning business rules taxonomy, pillars that can control and moderate the volume of information and extract and maximise the value, ensuring that knowledge is not lost

. Share Point & the AKD are MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL

Share Point & the AKD together can facilitate the rapid integration of lessons learned into formal knowledge

Share Point & the AKD together can create a Knowledge Sharing Organisation

10 REASONS WHY AKD & SP ARE INTERDEPENDANT

? Retention of Corporate Knowledge? Management of Corporate

Information? Uncontrolled Information? Inability to Find Documents? Disparate Information, Users, Needs? Requirement for Systematic Approach? ALPC = Integrate/amalgamate
