Assignment 1 - Data, Information and Knowledge (1500 words (+/- 10%)) A key understanding within knowledge management is to be able to define and differentiate between data, information and knowledge.Your essay should provide a very brief introductory overview of knowledge, information and data, considering the challenges identified in the literature in defining and differentiating between these terms. You are then going to undertake a knowledge audit of a job that you select. You are to select a job that includes the use of computer technology (For example: engineer, manager (specify the type of manager), computer programmer, lecturer, etc) . Identify the knowledge, information and data that the person needs to undertake their job. With jobs that are multifaceted and complex you may need to further identify a specific part of that person's job. Note: The example jobs listed here are just that, they are examples. You may choose any job that includes the use of technology. As part of this assignment you will: Define and describe knowledge, information and data in a general sense, as well as providing specific examples for the job that you have selected. Describe how 21st Century technology assists the use of the knowledge, information and data. Describe what challenges come with the use of the technology in relation to the knowledge, information and data. Does the technology remove or alter the knowledge, information and data required? Propose how the knowledge needed in this job contributes to organisational and personal operational efficiency and strategy. In this assessment, you should aim to make use of recent primary academic journal articles and the Jashapara (2011) textbook. Please note the following details: As a guideline, the length of the main body of your essay should be around 1500 words or so excluding references - essays that are substantially longer than this (say over 2000 words) or shorter than this (say less than 1000 words) are unlikely to score as highly as those that make the best use of the 1500 word length (being on target and making the best use of the word allocation is always better than being off-message). However, you should not worry about a few words either way (this is a guideline only, and I do not have a 'negative marking scheme' where marks are deducted if the word count is more than 10% over the guideline). Text should be word processed, with appropriate layout and use of headings/sub-headings. Font and line spacing are not part of the assessment criteria, listed below. Diagrams should be used to illustrate specific aspects - a picture paints ten thousand words! (please ensure that you correctly cite/reference all sources of diagrams used, unless they are original and composed by you, since this is an important aspect of academic integrity). The list of references should form the last page or two, at the end of the assessment. Referencing should be in Harvard style. Please save/upload your file in either a Word format (.doc or .docx) or in a basic text format (for example, .rtf), so that I can open the files in Word.
