Another KM definition

This is the first KM definition that echoes my own favourite definition

This one comes from Rob Van Der Spek (who I have admired for ages as an experienced and practical KM professional). He says Knowledge Management is

"anything an organisation can do to create an environment in which employees are
seduced to deal intelligently with their own knowledge and the knowledge of
others in order to achieve their individual and collective actions"
I like this, because it portrays KM as an organisational response, without defining HOW the orgamisaiton will shape that response, which will differ from organisation to organisation.

(although I think the word "seduced" isn't right in the long term. Maybe in the short term - not in fully embedded KM)
