Choose to approach this assessment in a variety of ways.

For this, could consider using a research tool to support like an information management questionnaire. And alternatively choose to focus on one aspect of knowledge management, such as:

  • Knowledge capturing and creation
  • knowledge sharing and dissemination or
  • knowledge acquisition and application
  • And use this as basis for analysis. Plus, study the application of a framework as a solution and provide the necessary research study towards the same. Additionally, also need to provide the supporting link between systems thinking and knowledge management.

    And provide an appropriate background of the concepts of knowledge management, using literature in the proper manner, with accurate and complete references. Provide a brief description of the situation you will be using for your critical appraisal. These are both necessary conditions but are not sufficient.

    Knowledge Management in Bank of Muscat
    Introduction to Organization
    Bank of Muscat is one of the leading banks in the Oman Sultanate. This position has
    pushed the bank to adopt different strategies and aspects of management and technology to
    enable them to handle knowledge management efficiently. Knowledge management can be
    referred to the process by which organizations are able to share, create and use knowledge for
    value creation. In 2012 the bank of Muscat updated their vision to state, "we can do more." This
    vision was developed in line with major management steps taken to ensure that the bank was
    doing more regarding knowledge management and their overall outcome (Muscat Daily News,
    Conceptual Discussion
    This move incorporated strategies like the adaptation of a new customer service
    management system that would help them attain their vision for offering sustainable services and
    delivering great value through competence in the bank’s staff. The bank also adopted a change in
    organizational structure by emphasizing more professionalism through improving the quality of
    their staff as they invested in skill training programs. In 2014, following the objectives of the
    new vision, the Bank of Muscat took a step to enhance their leadership and management skills
    through a learning program initiated by Harvard Business Publishing (,
    2017). This course was created for leaders and managers to enhance knowledge management in
    the different departments and aspects of the organization. The course covered the use of
    technology for sharing knowledge as well as established behaviors in an organization.

    Present Intellectual Capital
    The intellectual capital of Bank of Muscat is commendable considering this is one of the
    best banks in Oman. The bank's human resource ranges from staff with education levels of
    Graduate and Post Graduate levels to Primary Level and all allocated to relevant posts that match
    their skills and education. There are more males than females in the staff total which could be as
    a result of the sultanate culture that requires men to be the providers for their families and the
    future families. The bank is however rated higher in its attempts to employ more women with the
    percentage of women on the staff being about 31 percent (Revenio, 2016). The management of
    this bank follows the hierarchical model that includes board of directors, executive management,
    departmental managers, and employees. The main focus of the report is on the Customer Service
    Management in regards to knowledge sharing.
    The bank of Muscat serves over 1.2 million people in Oman which requires them to have
    effective customer services. The Bank adopts an information system to help in knowledge
    sharing namely the Feedback Management System (FMS) (, 2013). This
    platform can be used by customers to air their complaints and concerns and can be used by the
    bank’s management to offer solutions and get back to customers over the issues they raise. This
    system, therefore, is part of the intellectual capital. The bank’s board of directors was also
    involved in a learning program offered by the Institute of Management Development of
    Switzerland in 2017. This workshop by the internationally recognized business school was meant
    to offer knowledge on strategic growth as well as the bank’s long-term value creation. This
    workshop highlighted the current sustainable and effective strategies applied by board
    management in maintaining sustainable bank future. As a development program,...
