Another daft definition of KM, to continue my rant from my previous post. Here's one I found on the web today
Knowledge management is a way of efficient assembly, alteration, preservation as well as control of data inside businesses, alongside systems made to make the most from that information. It points specifically to utilities and techniques made to preserve information and information compiled by individuals who make up the establishment.
A definition that, in two sentences, mentions data once and information three times, and knowledge not at all (other than in the term being defined). Is it any wonder there is so much confusion between information management, data management and knowledge management, with definitions such as this?
For a better definition, see the definition video on our page of knowledge management videos
