Knowledge management and librarianship: part3
- lack of business knowledge
- lack of understanding of the interplay between information and organizational objectives
- poor team and leadership skills
- lack of management skills
Another general criticism of LIS professionals is that they are reluctant to change or slow to do so even when the need to do so is apparent. So, they fail to seize the opportunities.
To successfully engage in knowledge management, LIS professionals must have a holistic view and go beyond the narrow scope of their profession.
