Nonprofit organisations (NPOs) should invest in knowledge management as it could enable them to capture, develop, share and effectively utilise organisational knowledge. Furthermore, the best use of knowledge could assist NPOs to achieve their organisational objectives.
In this week’s edition of NGO Pulse, Ashley Hourigan, knowledge management specialist at Tshikululu Social Investments, writes that there is no ‘one size fits all’ method of executing a knowledge management approach in organisations. Hourigan, who is of the view that specific results will be derived on the core objectives that the organisation has set out to achieve, adds that, “…knowledge management practices in nonprofit companies become too cumbersome to manage and require specialist expertise to execute the practice.” He also states that knowledge management could enable NPOs to meet the needs of their communities and ensure the sustainability of their programmes and projects, among others.

Planact, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), hosted the Inner-City Housing Consultative Meeting with NGOs, researchers, affected residents, donors, private sector and other relevant stakeholders to discuss housing-related challenges in the inner-city of Johannesburg. The organisation says that the three main objectives of the event were to conduct a milestone evaluation of inclusivity in the inner-city of Johannesburg; to enhance stakeholders understanding of the inner-city housing challenges; to facilitate cooperation among the diverse stakeholders through advocacy; and to document the outcome of the consultative meeting and use it as a basis for planning its projects in the inner-city. Following the consultative meeting, Planact is conducting workshops with residents from some of the city’s ‘bad buildings’ to improve their understanding about the different legislations, operations of local government and their responsibilities.
