Pandemic and the Critical Role of Knowledge Management
The Knowledge Management in Education During Covid 19Biljana Lazareska, Biljana Stojanovska
Knowledge management is especially important in times of crisis. Good management in any area, strategies, and making the right decisions are key in overcoming the Covid 19 crisis. In education, we found five necessary stages for better knowledge management: planning, reviews, implementation, evaluation, and post-planning. Planning should include strategic and operational planning at all levels. It is important to plan support for each component of the education system. In the planning process, the most important thing is to set goals, which can be short-term and long-term. Goals should be carefully prepared and structured, as well as measurable. That is, the system should enable monitoring of the implementation and achievement of the goals. The review process is important to anticipate and perceive all the shortcomings of the planned strategy and to overcome them before it is implemented. If you complete the previous steps but do not proceed with the next implementation - then it is as if you bought all the products for a meal, but did not put them on the plate to eat. The most acceptable way to achieve and monitor the implementation is to prepare a diagram of activities, which contains the activities, time of execution, executors, and the like. No conceptual development is possible if everything that is planned and organized is not monitored and evaluated. Post-planning is needed to respond quickly to changes in society. One such example is the Covid 19 crisis when we had to react quickly and post-planning quickly.
