Abstract:

Knowledge Management, as practiced in rural communities via oral traditions, has been time-tested in preserving indigenous knowledge and practices. The form of KM employed however distinctly differs from current practices in organizations. This paper then focuses on this less studied but potentially invaluable, indigenous knowledge management practices within these rural communities. This work serves as an extension to the past experiences of the authors in implementing rural ICT intervention projects over the past twelve years. This study has adapted the use of current knowledge management tools in the realization of a holistic approach to model indigenous knowledge management practices. The framework developed has been instrumental in delivering strategies to best address the particular needs for effectively empowering rural communities.
