The Nonsense Of Knowledge Management

Examines critically the origins and basis of 'knowledge management', its components and its development as a field of consultancy practice. Problems in the distinction between 'knowledge' and 'information' are explored, as well as Polanyi's concept of 'tacit knowing'. The concept is examined in the journal literature, the Web sites of consultancy companies, and in the presentation of business schools. The conclusion is reached that 'knowledge management' is an umbrella term for a variety of organizational activities, none of which are concerned with the management of knowledge. Those activities that are not concerned with the management of information are concerned with the management of work practices, in the expectation that changes in such areas as communication practice will enable information sharing.

Knowledge Management: Big Challenges, Big Rewards

"Many of the mindsets around the concept of knowledge management assume that tacit knowledge can always be put in words, pictures and databases," says Tighe, who is manager of quality and performance management at Chevron Corp. in San Francisco. But concepts like negotiation and leadership, he says, "are skills and know-how that are difficult to transfer through explicit means."
