A Framework to Facilitate Collaboration in Employability Ecosystem in Malaysia
Keywords:Collaborative Knowledge Management, Information Sharing, Employability, Ecosystem,
AbstractTo improve the labor market, solving the discrepancies between demand (industry) and supply (government, MQA, job seekers, students) is critical. Industry requirements frequently change from time to time, forcing the government, the MQA, job seekers and students to keep up with the current job requirement. The government, the industry and the MQA each has certain information kept isolated from the public, making it difficult to access and exchange the information between them. Citizens, especially job seekers and students face difficulties because it takes a long time to seek the information located in different web portals. Little research has been done on the possibility of collaborating via information sharing between four actors - government, MQA, industry and citizen by having a central standard online platform where each of them able to accesses, exchanges, and represents the information. However, their study only explores the concept of collaborative information system (CIS) among the four actors. This research is conducted to introduce and describe the components of employability framework with the basic principles in Collaborative Knowledge Management (CKM).
