State-Of-The-Art Pkm

Indeed, the PKM notions and concepts have grown in emphasis and popularity in recent years. As this Chapter develops, some of the key elements considered stem from Carrillo's work (Carrillo, 1996, 2001a, 2001b, 2002; CSC, 2001, 2002; Martinez, 1999) based in his concepts on KM perspectives. However, it should be acknowledged (Carrillo, 1996) that in the onset of the movement the personal/individual dimension of KM received scarce attention from researchers and practitioners. Although Personal Knowledge Management concepts are mainly used today within the KM field, such notions have an earlier foundational background rooted in a number of disciplines related to individual human development; such as philosophy, psychology and sociology. More recently, the same notions have been used to support considerations such as the Emotional Intelligence approach developed (among others) by Goleman (1995) and Frand and Hixon (1999), and Personal Intellectual Capital (Carrillo, 2002).
