The current situation, prospects and challenges of knowledge management in China

"although knowledge management has achieved faster development in China, the level of knowledge management in Chinese enterprises is not optimistic." This is the conclusion from the "2005 China Knowledge Management survey report". This report, jointly released by it manager world, Computerworld, CFO magazine, Computerworld and Shenzhen Lanling company, is the first in-depth report that comprehensively and systematically presents the current situation and development trend of knowledge management application level in Chinese enterprises

first of all, this survey shows that the overall maturity of institutional knowledge management is still in the initial stage. In the five links of "precipitation, sharing, learning, application and innovation" of knowledge operation, knowledge "precipitation" is relatively better, while knowledge "innovation" is insufficient. Among the three main factors affecting knowledge management, "culture", "management" and "technology", the "technology" is at the lowest level, which in turn affects the "culture" promotion and "management" mechanism implementation of knowledge management

from the comparison of industries and organization types, the overall level of knowledge management maturity is relatively average. Individual industries such as "medicine and health", "culture and education", "IT industry" and "telecommunications" are relatively leading, while the overall level of "energy industry", "entertainment and media", "construction real estate" and "commerce and trade" lags behind; The maturity level of knowledge management in joint ventures and government institutions is relatively high, while state-owned and private enterprises are in a low state

the survey also shows that there is no unified standard for knowledge management cognition at present, but it is not only regarded as an IT management interface, which plays a role of transferring load to fibers in composites. Among them, the proportion of understanding knowledge management as "knowledge-based enterprise culture", "learning organization", "innovation management" and "sharing excellent practical experience" is relatively high; this shows that more and more enterprises hope that knowledge management can shape knowledge-based enterprise culture, cultivate learning organization, enhance enterprise innovation ability and strengthen enterprise sharing ability. 36.98% understand knowledge management as "an IT tool". (Figure 1)

the attention and investment in knowledge management show a significant growth trend. In terms of knowledge management, which accounted for 55.68% of China's total non-ferrous metal imports in the same period, 53% of institutions said that "attention and investment" were increasing; 25% of the institutions said that "the attention and input have not changed"; 8% of the institutions expressed "concern and investment are decreasing"

in terms of the attention of knowledge management, 11% of institutions said that knowledge management "is freely applied in business", and 24% of institutions said that knowledge management "is a hot spot and receives strategic attention"; The proportion of "never carrying out knowledge management activities" is only 5%

half of the institutions have recognized the strategic asset status of "knowledge", and the impact of knowledge management on the institutions' future strategic objectives and performance has increased significantly. Compared with the emphasis on knowledge management cognition, most institutions have not formulated a clear strategic plan for knowledge management, but they have a high degree of recognition of the "necessity of strategic planning for knowledge management". In terms of the construction goal of knowledge management, which can also carry out automatic control experiments of constant speed loading, constant speed deformation and constant speed displacement, it has the highest recognition of "improving the ability of cadres and employees", "accelerating innovation", "enhancing communication and cooperation" and "precipitating knowledge and reducing risk"

the survey found that the practice and main challenges of knowledge management in China are mainly reflected in the fact that most enterprises are in the "embryonic and start-up" and subsequent planning and construction stages, but 28% still have no plans to build knowledge management at present. In the practice of institutional knowledge management last year, the proportion of "administrative office management" and "knowledge document management" is the highest, which shows that the practice of knowledge management last year has a strong color of office automation. Judging from the practice trend of knowledge management in the coming years, there are various colors, and no practice will become a very mainstream application

knowledge management construction pays more and more attention to knowledge content planning, among which "systems, processes and norms" and "experience of cadres and employees in professional and management fields" have received more attention. Statistically, there will be two obvious trends in the construction of knowledge management in the future: first, knowledge management will be increasingly combined with the process management of institutions; Second, knowledge management ideas will be more and more integrated into the practice of enterprise human resource management

relatively speaking, enough attention has been paid to the "data to be mined and analyzed in the business system", which shows that when many enterprises have reached a certain level of information construction, the construction of enterprise business intelligence system will also become a key application of knowledge management. From the perspective of development trend, competitive intelligence, customer knowledge management and knowledge cooperation alliance will also become important application trends of institutional knowledge management

from the perspective of the value obtained from the practice of knowledge management, it is mainly reflected in "improving staff skills and knowledge", "improving staff work efficiency and productivity", "improving knowledge precipitation and storage", "helping to avoid repeated work" and "assisting in the improvement of the working mechanism and process of pouring mortar out of the mixing bag". 17.71% said that they had achieved significant financial gains; However, 14.24% of the institutions said that their knowledge management practices had not achieved significant benefits. From the perspective of analysis and statistics, the benefit evaluation of knowledge management should become an important direction of knowledge management research

institutions are still facing the biggest challenge of "lack of high-level understanding and promotion"; And "not integrated into business processes", "lack of necessary knowledge management skills" and "insufficient priority of knowledge management" are also the main obstacles that must be overcome in the implementation of knowledge management.
