Often referred to as "Knowledge Management", KM is a concept that has evolved from the private sector in the context of the emergent knowledge economy. Based on the assumption that knowledge is the foundation for equitable and sustainable development, KM has recently become a top priority for key decision-makers in the development milieu.
But what is Knowledge Management? And how can your organization benefit from it? While there exists increasing interest in the concept of KM, there is also great uncertainty about what it really means and how to go about it.
