Knowledge Architect/Operation

Knowledge Architecture Operation

After brief background and knowledge-architecture-basics considerations, this section considers basic knowledge architecture operations, especially around three main axes: modeling, management, and sharing.

Modeling
Modeling seems to clearly be the most fundamental knowledge architecture operation, especially as not only is it key knowledge sharing by providing ways to express and represent knowledge, for communication, not only is it also key to knowledge management, but it also provides interfaces and tools for governance of knowledge, knowledge architecture, and to applications. More so, the more complex the applications, the more useful and powerful modeling can be.

Management
Whether for sharing, or simply to develop more or better knowledge, knowledge Management seems to clearly be the most common knowledge architecture operation. While not the most complex or sophisticated, it is clearly the most elaborate, especially as it comprises vast numbers of tasks, constraints, tools and applications.

Sharing
Based on sophisticated and complex principles like trust, context and background commonality, notation forms, communications, and general awareness, Knowledge Sharing seems to clearly be the most complex and sophisticated knowledge architecture operation, as well as probably the most sophisticated operation that any being may be capable of. Of course, this sophistication carries complexity and fragility, as well as the need for built-in tracking, error detection, and correction, at all levels. Yet, knowledge sharing is key, as it defines the effective value of knowledge.
