my earlier post on "What is Knowledge" - here is a definition from the Singapore Armed Forces.
Our definition of knowledge is "the capacity to take effective action in varied and uncertain situations"
This is only a slight variant of Senge's definition, which is close to my favourite definition. Its a great definition, because it takes us away from documents and content and facts and Information and Data, and takes us into the human realm of decisions and actions.
It also points towards the purpose of KM, which is to IMPROVE our capacity to take effective action in varied and uncertain situations.
