- ItemKnowledge management in local government : the case of Stellenbosch Municipality(AOSIS OpenJournals, 2010-08) Gaffoor, Shamin; Cloete, FanieKnowledge management (KM) was a well-founded management approach that held significant benefits for public sector organisations. KM as a management philosophy had an impact on various components of an organisation and it could therefore significantly advance organisational efficiency. The successful implementation of KM initiatives had to be ensured because, different organisational processes and departments had to collaborate and functional silos had to be eliminated. KM required long-term commitment and dedication from all organisational members. Furthermore, there were certain knowledge management enablers in an organisation that needed to be developed and that were necessary for the achievement of organisational effectiveness. These enablers were the organisational culture, human resources, information technology, organisational structure and, the organisation’s strategy and leadership. This article assessed each of these enablers and how they impacted on an organisation’s KM efforts. Stellenbosch Municipality was used as a case in point. The article further examined how local governments were able to effectively implement KM practices as strategic tools used to achieve service delivery and operational goals. The article concluded with a number of recommended strategies, (1) to develop the KM enablers that were present in organisations and (2) to aid the implementation of successful organisational KM initiatives.
- ItemScience potential for development in Africa not yet fully realised(ASSAf, 2021-05-28) Cloete, FanieRadhamany Sooryamoorthy is Professor of Sociology in the School of Social Sciences at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. His field of interest is the contribution of science to development in Africa compared to more developed nations. This book summarises his recent research into this topic. Structured over seven chapters, Sooryamoorthy maps the evolution, development and implications of scientific practices in both colonial and contemporary Africa. In this process he attempts to answer 10 research questions. They deal inter alia with issues such as (1) the extent to which science was undertaken historically in Africa under colonial rule; (2) the extent to which it is currently practised and prioritised through systematic science, technology and innovation approaches, policies and funding; (3) which African countries do what in this regard and why, and (4) how weaknesses in current practices can be improved to facilitate and support development on the continent (p. 25–26).
