Globalization has created new opportunities for business enterprises and their employees. Employees have started leaving the organization to avail themselves of the opportunities. Consequently knowledge gained and developed by them is lost when they quit the organization. Many business enterprises have started realizing that they need a solid and ongoing system that will capture and store the knowledge of their organizations and employees in information systems. It is required to establish synergy between the concepts of knowledge management and information technology for the creation of knowledge management system. This paper talks about the steps to be followed for incorporating the concept of knowledge harvesting with the human centered component in intellectual capital in business practices of an organization. Further it explains the role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in this process.
