Knowledge Management (KM) is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying,
retrieving, evaluating, and sharing an enterprise’s tacit and explicit knowledge assests to meet mission

The objective is to connect those who know with those who need to know (know-why, knowwhat,
know-who, and know-how) by leveraging knowledge transfers from one-to-many across the enterprise

Epistemologically, my version on KM definition derived from paradigm of Knowledge postulated as the analogy with Human System Biology (HSB) applied to KM called as HSB-based KM model (visit and our K-Base and pics/the-epistemology-of-human ) as well as fundamentally rooted from our DI ? KW model in which DI separated from KW, not DIKW as a continuum considering that Knowledge is human knowing tools achieved as inborn as well as acquired and evolved as emergent property inside human being as complex system since the beginning of life and acting as human consciousness ( see the K-base )

The following are my version on KM definition :

? Contextually ? driven KM Definition : Knowledge Management (KM) essentially is not management technique but behaving more as an access mechanisms that can be used across any management tool type such as Total Quality Management, Learning Organization, Benchmarking, Process Classification Framework, Business Process Reengineering, Balanced Scorecard, Business Intelligence including Social Media 2.0 platforms etc. wherein each with their specific functions to be orchestrated under KM?s consciousness. So, here we put KM in incredibly broad meaning as subject with higher level than any other management tool type which is treated only as object ( and )

? Content based ? driven KM Definition : KM described as ?Human Enlightenment Process-based KM Definition? through the link and in which KM defined as follow :
1. KM is the staging of Human Enlightenment Process
2. The process is to managing the transformation of Information content as object into Knowledge and beyond as subject (KW concept noted as narrow meaning)
3. The goals are towards Learning, Growth and Innovation
4. The management should leveraged by KM Standards Culture and Value, KM Tools and KM Process Framework

Therefore, from this standpoint, especially from the version of contextually-driven KM definition, I certainly viewing that KM is critical in all management tool types that very depended upon KM as the organizational consciousness entity where interaction among those varies of management tool types taken place. So, I?d like to suggest, don?t put them as ?terms confused? vs KM because it seems inappropriate
