Arguably now, even more than in normal times, it is crucial for banks to leverage their knowledge resources so that they are able to respond to deal with the undoubted major strategic challenges that exist. This paper reports on a survey of the current performance of KM practices in credit risk management departments in banks in Jordan. The secondary objective is to compare the performance of KM practices between commercial and Islamic banks.
Data have been collected using a survey questionnaire, administered to staff at all levels in five major banks in Jordan. The construction of the questionnaire has been based on the concepts and framework of dynamic Multi-Criteria-Analysis/Critical-Success-Factors (MCA-CSF) model which was developed and presented previously (Tambyrajah and AL-Shawabkeh, 2007). The analytical approach is based on Multi-Criteria-Analysis (MCA), with the objective of producing vertical and horizontal hierarchies of Bank-KM performance indicators/indices, as well as an overall summary Bank-KM performance indicator. The various indicators for the five banks provide a multi-level picture of the KM-performance of the banks, which can be used either as a basis for a year on year monitoring of Bank-KM performance or to allow a bank to compare itself with its competitors.
