Knowledge management framework At this stage we have had a look at the components and definitions that related to knowledge management (KM).

An entity (whether an individual or an organization) that can process this cycle quickly, observing and reacting to unfolding events more rapidly than an opponent can thereby "get inside" the opponent's decision cycle and gain the advantage.

Knowledge Information Data Before one can begin to talk about knowledge management (KM), one must start by clearly defining the meaning of the word "knowledge".

5 Myths of Social Software – Myth #1 Facebook In recent months I’ve been travelling a lot for IBM’s Get Social Do Business roadshows across UK, Ireland, Germany and Switzerland.
