This article reinforces the importance and benefits of exercising Personal Knowledge Management (PKM).

With so much information out there via social media and the internet, PKM is a conscious way of working. It will help you establish what you are looking for, filter out irrelevant or bad content and help you explore new areas of beneficial knowledge and information. With practice, this will enable you to fine-tune your practice.

Tom Spiglanin describes three key components of PKM and these are Capturing Knowledge, Developing Knowledge and Sharing Knowledge. Disciplining yourself to work in this way will ensure your knowledge management becomes personal to meet your own particular needs but could also benefit and add value for others.
