Knowledge management (KM) is the strategic management of the creation and use of knowledge for increased innovation, value and excellence. The KM Strategy supports the Defence Research and Development (R&D) Canada (DRDC) vision of becoming the best in defence R&D through five objectives: - Clarifying and focusing the mission so that employees and management are able to understand the intention and prioritize their efforts; - Developing corporate information management tools and information seeking expertise as building blocks for KM; - Accessing and sharing internal expertise; - Enhancing the exchange and access to foreign defence R&D information and knowledge; and - Establishing a mutual vision for defence R&D with Canadian Forces clients. The DRDC KM Framework has four components: 1) establishing and nurturing a workplace environment that is conducive to knowledge sharing and creation, i.e., the “knowledge environment”; 2) tools and systems to access and share information and knowledge; 3) establishing and nurturing relationships for the creation and exchange of knowledge; and 4) the ability to develop the skills and expertise of employees through learning strategies.
