The Word Web…

Representing a Knowledge architecture

Hello Folks,

Has anyone here worked on designing a knowledge architecture for an organization? 

I am looking for inspiration on how to represent the architecture, with its many elements and dimensions. I believe if I have a visual image that frame the K architecture idea, it will be easier to communicate the idea and have the conversations progressing with my colleagues.
