City Wraps up Knowledge Management Sessions

The City in partnership with the Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs wrapped up the third and final day of an intensive Knowledge Management (KM) Exchange Workshop which was held at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Gauteng Provincial Legislature: Knowledge Management Specialist Nompumelelo Cele shared insight on the prospects of organisational needs and information technology trends. Nompumelelo spoke on the importance and relevance of KM practitioners to work together with other units and organisations. She touched on the power of networking in order to build the KM database, managing, capturing and sharing knowledge to help improve service delivery.

An informative and interesting presentation by TED Talk participant Chika Ezeanya-Esiobu touched on how Africa can make use of its traditional knowledge to make progress and harness indigenous knowledge within local communities.

In order for KM to be beneficial in today’s society, practitioners agreed that they have to think differently in a changing world and changing context. It was agreed that strong partnerships with all stakeholders was the foundation of building a successful KM system in eThekwini and the country as a whole.

The Municipal Institute of Learning (Mile) Senior Manager Fezile Njokweni stated that the way forward is to develop Terms of Reference (TOR’s), where input is made by all municipalities and provinces. This plan of action will be followed by identifying relevant provincial officials and constituting a secretariat.

Njokweni said that some of the challenges that KM faces is that many municipalities have not even started the process of developing a KM database. However he said Mile through its knowledge sharing programmes would help and guide other municipalities.

Njokweni added that Mile would continue to facilitate ongoing learning and dialogue on topical issues. And that the learning academy would document and disseminate good practices and lessons learnt across all municipal functions.
