What is Knowledge Management (KM)? There are almost as many definitions as there are KM practitioners including:

"Knowledge Management (KM) comprises a range of strategies and practices used in an organization to identify, create, represent, distribute, and enable adoption of insights and experiences. Such insights and experiences comprise knowledge, either embodied in individuals or embedded in organizational processes or practice."

(Source:Wikepedia . . . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knowledge_management)

 

Or

"Definition of Knowledge Management (KM) -- it refers to a range of practices and techniques used by organizations to identify, represent and distribute knowledge, know-how, expertise, intellectual capital and other forms of knowledge." (http://knowledge-management.bestmanagementarticles.com/)
