What is KM? Knowledge Management Explained

Quite simply one might say that it means organizing an organization's information and knowledge holistically, but that sounds a bit wooly, and surprisingly enough, even though it sounds overbroad, it is not the whole picture.

" This definition has the virtue of being simple, stark, and to the point.

La gestión documental es el conjunto de normas técnicas y prácticas usadas para administrar el flujo de documentos de todo tipo en una organización, permitir la recuperación de información desde ellos, determinar el tiempo que los documentos deben guardarse, eliminar los que ya no sirven y asegurar la conservación indefinida de los documentos más valiosos, aplicando principios de racionalización y economía.

Gestión documental

Es una actividad casi tan antigua como la escritura, que nació debido a la necesidad de "documentar" o fijar actos administrativos y transacciones legales y comerciales por escrito para dar fe de los hechos. Este tipo de documentos se plasmaron sucesivamente en tablillas de arcilla, hojas de papiro, pergaminos y papel, cuya gestión se fue haciendo cada vez más compleja a medida que crecía el tamaño de los fondos documentales.
