What is the Knowledge Management Vision statement for your organisation?
Here are a few vision statements from companies; some are official statements, some are CEO statements that encapsulate the vision, some are statements crafted by the KM team. Where I can find online references, I have added them.
If you have a moment, please share your KM vision statement with other readers using the Comments field! The more examples we have, the better.

The Federal government continues its transformation journey to become the pre-eminent provider of knowledge among and across the nation with national security in mind. We must shape our environment and leverage our knowledge as steward of the taxpayer’s dollars. To that end we must achieve our mission to safeguard the
and our Allies from threats while securing knowledge that could be of benefit to our enemies. To maintain an advantage over our adversaries and provide mission readiness, we must further our capabilities, programs, and supporting knowledge bases. This transformation will require changes to be made in the manner in which we leverage our knowledge across the federal government; changes that will move us from a stove-piped, decentralized environment to a learning environment, constantly striving to leverage personnel assets, and improve and enable processes. Key to this transformation is the need to create a trusted environment where the culture is focused on sharing knowledge, using integrated technologies and incentivizing and rewarding knowledge contributions across the government and it’s stakeholders and partners, both nationally and internationally.
