The Force achieved excellence in the Global Knowledge Management (KM) Benchmarking Survey published by Professor Aino Kianto in June, with a score of 4.943 out of 5, outperforming other organisations that have an average overall score of 3.599.
Professor Kianto is the Academic Director of the Master Programme in KM and Leadership at Lappeenranta University of Technology in Finland. She started the KM survey in 2013 and has collected data from 1 026 international organisations in six countries. She visited the Hong Kong Police College (HKPC) in March this year and interviewed Director of HKPC Lau Chi-wai and her KM team for data collection in the following KM domains, namely KM Leadership, Knowledge Protection, Strategic Knowledge and Competence Management, Human Resource Management, Learning Practices, Information Technology (IT) Management Practices, Work Organisation, Data Analytics, and Organisational Culture.
Apart from the excellent overall score, the Force scored full marks in the areas of Knowledge Protection, Learning Practices and IT Management Practices. Ms Lau announced the achievement to core members of KM team at the KM Policy and Co-ordination Committee meeting on August 8.
The survey not only recognises the Force as an admirable law enforcement agency in driving and implementing KM, but also affirms its status as a knowledge-powered learning organisation. It confirms the internationally leading position of the Force in KM.
