2 KM Definitions

Joe on actKM

“I think Knowledge Management is activity intended to enhance knowledge processing, while Knowledge Science is the “scientific discipline” (whatever that is) attempting to produce the highest quality knowledge about how to seek, recognize, and formulate problems (in the sense of knowledge gaps), produce new knowledge, and integrate that knowledge. So, I think these fields are two different things, but that Knowledge Managers might do Knowledge Science from time to time as part of their KM activities, and that they certainly should support the development of knowledge science since it will greatly support their own work. “

Dave Snowden on CE

“Now don’t get me wrong, the objectives of KM theory and practice persist and will continue to be of great importance. They are clear, simple and important and can be summarised as follows:

  1. To support effective decision making
  2. To create the conditions for innovation”
