Knowledge management has long been used in the business arena as one  
of the means to organize work and increase employee efficiency. At its  
finest, knowledge management facilitates knowledge turn-over, builds  
individual capacity, and strengthens relationships among employees and  
partner agencies.

However, knowledge management has also been used as a buzzword, and  
very few people understand it correctly, and in-depth.  As a result,  
knowledge management has not been utilized completely in various  
institutions, and its potential has not yet been realized.

What exactly is knowledge management, and how can it benefit  
educational and research institutions? In this brown bag symposium,  
Garry Jay S. Montemayor will provide insight into knowledge  
management, what it is, what it is not, and how it can help an  
institution grow and flourish.

Mr. Montemayor graduated from UPLB?s CDC in 2004. After working for a  
multinational corporation, he practiced as a freelance writer and  
editor, and then returned to the academe. Today, Mr. Montemayor  
specializes in Information Management, Knowledge Management (including  
Organizational Communication and Social Networks) and Communication  
Research. His research interests include science journalism, media  
representations, knowledge management, and development communication.
