This publication, Army Techniques Publication ATP 6-01.1 (FM 6-01.1) Techniques for Effective Knowledge Management provides doctrinal knowledge management guidance. It provides doctrine for the organization and operations of the knowledge management section, and establishes the doctrinal principles, techniques, and procedures necessary to effectively integrate knowledge management into the operations of brigades and higher. The Army embraced knowledge management as a discipline in 2003. How the Army manages information and facilitates the movement of knowledge has changed dramatically in recent years. This includes the growth of knowledge management in the Army and refinement of associated technology-both hardware and software. Recognizing that the ability to efficiently manage knowledge is essential to effective mission command, the Army authorized the Army Knowledge Management Qualification Course, with additional skill identifier to prepare Soldiers for knowledge management's complex challenges. Knowledge management sections at brigade through theater army headquarters now work with commanders and staffs to help manage knowledge in their organizations; bridging the art of command and the science of control through knowledge management. What individuals and small elements know that could help others cannot be widely shared without the means to share it. The volume of available information makes it difficult to identify and use relevant information, knowledge management provides the means to efficiently share knowledge, thus enabling shared understanding and learning in organizations. To do this, knowledge management creates, organizes, applies, and transfers knowledge and information between authorized people. It seeks to align people, processes, and tools-including information technology-in the organization to continuously capture, maintain, and reuse key information and lessons learned to help units learn and adapt and improve mission performance. Knowledge management enhances an organization's ability to detect and remove obstacles to knowledge flow, thereby fostering mission success. Because collaboration is a key contributor to knowledge management, it is imperative that everyone be involved in the process: from the generating force, that trains and sustains the Soldier, to the Operating Force, which ensures Soldiers survive and thrive every day in every circumstance or location. ATP 6-01.1 has an introduction, six chapters, and Appendixes A through H. The introduction expands on the manual's purpose and summarizes the doctrine it contains.
