Knowledge Management Program—Building and Sustaining a Knowledge-Enabled Organization

Sponsored by the Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer

This poster will highlight a few of the agency’s Knowledge Management (KM) initiatives that enable employees to dynamically capture and share information and experience both internally and with the public.

Knowledge Governance: Many organizations struggle to achieve an effective KM program. One contributing reason is ineffective governance. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) possesses a robust KM program. A major reason for the NRC’s success in KM is because of its system of governance, which integrates KM horizontally and vertically throughout the agency, and achieves a balance of centralized KM management and decentralized KM implementation.

Documenting Knowledge: Launched in 2012, NUREG/KM is a series of publications established to preserve knowledge of documents and events that shaped the regulatory process or a technical topic. The series focuses on collecting and interpreting historical information on identified topics for the benefit of future generations of NRC professionals as well as the public. Currently, the series features seven publications: (1) NUREG/KM-0001, "Three Mile Island Accident of 1979 Knowledge Management Digest," (2) NUREG/KM-0002, "The Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant Fire of 1975 Knowledge Management Digest," (3) NUREG/KM-0003, "Fire Protection and Fire Research Knowledge Management Digest, 2013," (4) NUREG/KM-0004, "Fuel Behavior under Abnormal Conditions," (5) NUREG/KM-0005, "2002 Davis-Besse Reactor Pressure Vessel Head Degradation Knowledge Management Digest," (6) NUREG/KM-0006, "Fundamental Theory of Scientific Computer Simulation Review," (7) NUREG/KM-0007, "NRC Program on Knowledge Management of Liquid-Metal-Cooled Reactors," and (8) NUREG/KM-0008, "Reflections on Fukushima: NRC Senior Leadership Visit to Japan, 2014." The NUREG/KM series is available on the NRC public website at Publications Prepared by NRC Staff for Knowledge Management.

Capturing and Sharing Knowledge: The agency conducts a number of seminars and panel discussions to facilitate knowledge sharing. These events capture and share critical knowledge and experiences on a variety of topics in both corporate and technical fields and provide an opportunity for staff across the agency to learn directly from the experts. Sessions are often recorded and made available to staff as a knowledge resource.
