PAS 2001 Knowledge management. A guide to good practice

This guide examines knowledge management (KM) challenges, approaches and benefits with examples of good practice from industry, commerce and academia. It helps organizations of all sizes assess their KM approach and impact, through the use of good practice examples. PAS 2001 is one of the first documents to objectively and non-judgementally reflect all mainstream movements in KM, while also covering many emerging trends.

Key areas for practical implementations of KM are included, based on the authors experience and PricewaterhouseCoopers’ leading international reputation in this field. Managing the risk involved in knowledge management is also covered, highlighting the possible pitfalls, and the policies, standards and guidelines necessary to avoid them.

What is a pas?

A PAS provides a sponsored, fast-track route to standardization driven by the needs of the client organizations and developed according to guidelines set out in PAS 0. Key stakeholders are brought together to collaboratively produce a BSI PAS that has all the functionality of a British Standard for the purposes of supporting certification, sharing good practice or supporting innovation.

Within two years of the publication date a PAS is reviewed to determine whether amendment or revision is required or whether it should be considered for conversion to a formal British Standard.

A wide range of PAS documents are available to buy here in the BSI Shop, with many available as instant downloads. Some are also available free of charge.

For more information about fast-track standards, how PASs are commissioned, and how they could help your organization, please visit our PAS webpage.
