International symposium of knowledge management and communications

Lessons learned from the world’s greatest organizations show that even simple technologies can generate great performance when empowered by smart minds of motivated and committed humans. Conversely, ‘intelligent’ technologies may produce dumb results if those smarts are missing as evident from the cases of companies once considered great in the past era. Importantly, unless data and information are translated into ‘meaningful’ decisions and actions for sustained performance, there is no point of the whole exercise… whether you call it knowledge management, wisdom management, creativity management, or something else!

“Ensuring that workers can carry out their tasks effectively, by providing
the right knowledge
at the right place
at the right time.”

Read more about Knowledge management

“Knowledge management refers to the critical issues of organizational adaptation, survival and competence against radical discontinuous environmental change. Essentially it embodies organizational processes that seek synergistic combination of data and information processing capacity of information technologies, and the creative and innovative capacity of human beings.” “Knowledge management is more about the pragmatic and thoughtful application as it is not in the theoretical definition but in real world execution wherein lie the greatest opportunities and challenges. Any ‘definition’ therefore must be understood within the specific context of expected performance outcomes and value propositions that answer the question ‘Why’ about relevance of KM.”
Our following summary interpretations of the above ‘working definition’ of Knowledge Management are also popular among corporate strategists and military, airforce, and navy commanders. KM is: ‘Knowing what you know and profit from it’ and ‘Making obsolete what you know before others obsolete it.’

“The focus of Knowledge Management is on ‘doing the right thing’ instead of ‘doing things right’. It provides a framework within which the organization views all its processes as knowledge processes and all business processes involve creation, dissemination and application of knowledge towards organizational sustenance and survival.”

Clearly the goal of knowledge management is sustained individual and business performance through ongoing learning, unlearning, and adaptation. Technologies of computing have inherent limitations. They have difficulty in generating meaningful insights from data as they can’t question or re-interpret their programmed logic and assumptions. Given inherent limitations of the technologies of computing, human users of such ‘systems’ have at least an equally important role in knowledge management.

Knowledge Management is a new branch of management for achieving breakthrough business performance through the synergy of people, processes, and technology. Its focus is on the management of change, uncertainty, and complexity. It evolved from the need for advancing beyond the failing paradigm of Information Technology Management that accounts for 70%-80% system failures. As ‘IT’ becomes more of a commodity and endowed with more complex ‘potential’ capabilities, there is need for re-focusing on strategic execution. As we transition from an era of information scarcity to information glut, there is need for re-focusing on human sense-making processes underlying decisions, choices, and performance. In this new paradigm for increasingly uncertain and complex business environments, dynamically evolving performance outcomes are the key drivers of how ‘smart minds’ use ‘smart technologies’ to leverage strategic opportunities and challenges.

Why FUM IEEE Student Branch?

Students in high school usually consider the university as a preface for entering the society; a place where they can attain useful skills and gain momentum and confidence. However, the moment they enter the university, they realize that the environment is mostly academic; whether they choose to adapt to this environment, they will find themselves close minded.
A person who chooses to participate in extracurricular activities, besides regular studies, and expands his skill set will be successful eventually.
I am interested in working with Student Branch because it gives me the opportunity to do group activities, learn responsibility, develop writing skills, and to overcome the hardship in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Student Branch is also a great place to experience various actions including academic, individual, and social activities.

Great people to work with. Besides that, a lot of fun that is hard to miss. It kind of bugs my mind to focus only on studies. That’s why I joined IEEESB

Why did I join?

Everybody needs to belong somewhere. That’s just going to happen. So it’s better to choose consciously. It’s nice to be part of a community that is professional at what they do, and also have a fun and friendly atmosphere. It’s a change of tune from the daily life in the university. Two aspects from the university period will remain more vividly with people throughout the rest of their journey. Well maybe more than just two, but I want to make a persuasive point here and this argument is working. One is the knowledge obtained. Obviously, it’s the most important part, right? The second one is some good memories. The knowledge can be obtained in many forms but the commonly lacking one is through team work and a skilled community of peers and friends. As for the second one, to have good memories stored in your brain you need to experience a few at some point in life. This is the job of good friends. I am glad that I choose a premium package in both aspects.

Why did I stay?

I reached my goals and my expectations, and then I found new ones that I didn’t imagine before. I realized that IEEE provides a better model for the real world. A necessity that most universities are failing miserably to achieve. If you ever hope to move things around, you will need networking skills with real people. The professional peers of your field. In IEEE, making things happen translated in to the enjoyment of planning an event and seeing it go all the way through.
Temporary friends are easy to find and then easy to lose. I found unique friendships here. The kind that will remain in your life, if you are smart enough. They are and hopefully will be a big part of my life. Finally, I found some new goals and expectations. The experience of my seniors guided me through many difficulties here. I realized that I want to pass the torch to the next generation. I don’t want leave them in the vast darkness that is a normal, boring and kind of a fruitless university experience.

Why FUM IEEE Student Branch?

The primary reason that made me interested in working with the Student Branch was to gain the ability to work in group activities; such as the ability to co-operate, manage different tasks, and to tackle possible obstacles.
As I started my activities in the Student Branch, I realized that the most important thing in every group activity is to have discipline, responsibility, and to consult with others. It was in the warm atmosphere of the Student Branch that I learnt about how to work with other people and how to accept their opinions and beliefs.
Among all the things I have learnt from working in a group, finding good friends and spending time with them were the best that I have attained.
Doing group activities with your friends is the best opportunity to gain enough confidence for doing greater tasks.

Why FUM IEEE Student Branch?

When you enter university, you find yourself in massive lectures and excessively crowded classes. In order to become more successful, students take one step further than the regular curriculum, they try to learn social skills and teamwork as well as mastering in technical or practical skills.
IEEE is an organization with a great background, an enormous network of professionals. In FUM IEEE sb as a part of this organization, I felt there would be space for me to explore new roles and potential leadership opportunities while creating a name and reputation for myself.
On the other hand, student branch is an energetic organization, full of kind and responsible people who are committed to providing non-beneficial high-quality services to electrical students and engineers. In addition, communication with all the student branch alumni which is available in FUM IEEE sb, make it a rewarding environment for those who want to learn and improve. I can easily and proudly say that I work with a number of professionals whom I consider mentors and friends.
Additionally, IEEE is a network that recognizes accomplishments at all levels, giving every member an opportunity to excel. That does not imply competitiveness, though; I was drawn to student branch’s collaborative environment and friendly colleagues, as well as the organization’s willingness to adapt to the unique needs of its growing members.
I chose to join IEEE Sb since the organization was experiencing tough days and was in a position that most of its activities was substantially suspended by the extremist vice dean of the faculty. After a while faculty board was renewed and we find the chance to reestablish the IEEE student branch. IEEE sb offered me the possibility to move up quickly within the organization and gain exposure to numerous functional areas.
During my time at FUM IEEE sb, I have been encouraged to excel in the duties specific to my role and also to provide my perspective on larger challenges and opportunities facing the firm.
Finally, in my experience, IEEE student branch offers the opportunity for members to make a personal impact on methods and policies.

Tips for New Members:

Entrepreneurial spirits welcome.
IEEE student branch is a great place for individuals with a strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit. If you want to work hard and be rewarded accordingly for those efforts, IEEE sb is an ideal place.

Empower yourself
IEEE student branch rewards initiative, so look for opportunities to make your own path. Personal accountability is key, so be prepared to take ownership of your work – whatever that work may be.

Get on board now, be involved, and look for opportunities.
