Adjusment on our definition of Knowledge

Considering our DI-KW (stands for Data Information Knowledge Wisdom) model, as from Feb 8, 2010 via - “WE ARE THE KNOWLEDGE : HYBRID DEFINITION OF KNOWLEDGE” , we made adjustment to our definition of Knowledge as follow :

Knowledge is Human Enlightenment Agent (HEA) evolved as emergent behavior inside human body as complex (adaptive) system since beginning, having consciousness* and free will (mind and value) as well as behaving dynamically as Subject acting to transform physical realities into Data and Information toward higher level and maturity of Knowledge itself and beyond

*This is modified definition after we formally announced the DIKW model transformed into separated DI-KW model ( - THE ORIGIN OF KNOWLEDGE AND KM : DI-KW SEPARATED ENTITIES MODEL and - BLOOM’S TAXONOMY, KNOWLEDGE AND KM REVISITED : SHOULD DIKW MODEL TRANSFORMED INTO DI-KW MODEL?)

What i recently found interesting about the debate on knowledge definition was changing the hierarchical step after knowledge from wisdom to competency. When put in that perspective, knowledge, added to attitudes, skills turns into a component for competency. (Add values and you could get "capability" in the Moral Leadership framework). Looking at knowledge as a specific construct of data and information is fine, but looking at what comes after the achievement of knowledge should be part of the discussion too, IMHO.

In another forum, we were recently talking about the importance of adapting language with different groups and in different circumstances when addressing knowledge-related challenges.

I appreciate the efforts to define knowledge, develop transferable KM models and so on, and have participated in such activities off and on for 15 years or so. And--of course--many others worked to define and redefine knowledge for many centuries before we were born. My conclusion is that the process can be far more valuable than products.

Given that we are in a KM4DEV forum, I think my main motivation for posting was around boundaries and ethics. What are the implications of excluding the communities/people/systems one is trying to support when reifying definitions (or anything beyond some principles)?

We all get a great deal out of our engagement in KM4Dev. Maybe you would be happy to express appreciation through a regular voluntary contribution. Crowd funding works!
