Below is the project. I attached my draft in the direction I want to go but professor gave some feedback. Can someone revise and add to it to make it follow all the requirements.
Project Two: Knowledge Sharing Report
Worth 20 points, Part B Due in Week 5, Report Due in Week 6
The purpose of this assignment is to work as a team to complete a knowledge sharing report. The project requires you and your team members to identify the purpose of the organization and the knowledge external competitive context of the organization.
As a team, you will also research the current state of knowledge sharing of the identified organization, make recommendations for knowledge-sharing strategies that the organization can use, and discuss how the organization might be improved and better aligned to knowledge-sharing strategies. Focused on the functional areas of business, you will identify technology, human resources, and routines and process elements of the proposed knowledge sharing strategies.
To complete this assignment, you will develop several skills that include teamwork, collaboration, critical thinking (analyzing and synthesizing information to develop and support ideas, reasoning and conclusions), time management, writing skills and APA skills.
Outcomes Met With This Assignment:
- explain the goals of knowledge management and the roles of the knowledge worker and the knowledge manager in an organization;
- describe knowledge management trends, cultural impacts, and communities of practice in order to support organizational success;
- apply collaborative methods for acquiring and sharing knowledge within the organization;
- assess and communicate formal and informal knowledge management implementation approaches to expand knowledge sharing within an organization.
Knowledge sharing in organizations is an inexpensive way for Knowledge Managers to help organizations overcome barriers and become more competitive. In this group project, you will draw on the cumulative knowledge of Knowledge Management, and specifically from the readings on Communities of Practice, to propose effective knowledge sharing strategies.
Members of teams will follow pre-established rules for capture, validation, refreshing, and expiration of content; the least formal might be Facebook. The most formal might be an ongoing, complex, scientific research project. Of course, most K-sharing solutions are in the middle of these extremes.
This assignment is a group project. You will be placed into groups consisting of no more than four students each. Groups will be assigned early, and the expectation is that the groups will work on the various parts of the assignment as relevant content is covered throughout the course. The group will act as a self-directed team, and will therefore determine its own leadership, timetable, and task list, guidelines for communication, goals, and so forth. As an individual, you are expected to participate fully in the project.
You will actively participate in completing the assignment and group members will receive the same group grade. However, free-riders who contribute little will receive a different grade than the group grade at the discretion of the instructor. If you fail to contribute to the project, a zero for the assignment will be assigned.
The Project has a Part A and Part B. You will work in groups.
Groups will be assigned and set up by the Instructor. Each group will select an organization that each student agrees to study and to report upon. All work of the Group is to be conducted in the LEO Study Group workspace.
Part A: Knowledge Sharing Report
The Group will prepare a Report on K-sharing strategies for a selected organization. The strategies recommended by the group should be consistent with the type and attributes of the knowledge to be shared, a full understanding of communities of practice, and the purpose of the K-sharing strategy.
A group- selected leader will edit the group’s final report incorporating appropriate suggestions from Part B. Each member will post the assignment to their individual assignment folder.
Required Elements to include in the Knowledge Sharing Report):
- Each team will create a group name.
- Clearly designate the group leader on the paper;
- Identify the purpose of the organization
- Identify and discuss the knowledge external competitive context of the organization
- Explain the current state of knowledge-sharing in the organization
- Recommend knowledge-sharing strategies for the organization
- Discuss how the organization might be improved and better aligned to knowledge-sharing approaches
- Identify and explain how technology, human resources and organizational routines and process elements all proposed knowledge-sharing strategies.
Part B: Knowledge Sharing Discussion
Each group leader will post a draft of the group’s Part A Knowledge Sharing Report as a topic in the Week 5 Learning Activity #1.
The purpose of the Knowledge Sharing Discussion is to learn from one another. Peers can compare and contrast reports/strategies and make suggestions. Class members will be expected to comment constructively on the content of each group’s report as the participation grade for Week 6. Note: All learning group members will comment constructively on at least two other reports in part B.
Discussions in Week 5 will focus on insights from the each group’s report. Comments include how industries benefit from different K-sharing strategies. Use literature and course readings to support your report strategies and also to support peer comments.
After engaging in Week 5 peer evaluation, your group will work together to make changes as needed.
Proofread the paper for spelling and grammatical issues, and third person writing.
- Read the paper aloud as a first measure;
- Use the spell and grammar check in Word as a second measure;
- Have someone who has excellent English skills to proof the paper;
- Consider submitting the paper to the Effective Writing Center (EWC). The EWC will provide 4-6 areas that may need improvement.
How to Set Up the Report
Create a Word or Rich Text Format (RTF) document that is double-spaced, 12-point font. The report will be between 5-7 pages in length excluding the title page and reference page. You are expected to write clearly and concisely.
Use a report format using How to Write a Report. Consider making an outline to ensure the correct headings are in place and to help you organize the paper.
- Title page with the title, your name, course number and name; date, and the instructor’s name;
