What KM Is Not!

What KM Is Not!

KM is not information management, document management, data warehousing, data mining, imaging, yellow pages, content management, bulletin boards, ERM, CRM, BPM or any other form or application of information technology (IT). Nor is it library management, library science, business intelligence, best practices management, social network analysis, quality management, training, or e-learning.

What KM is is a management discipline aimed at enhancing organizational knowledge processing, and as such it is a social (management) science. Its purpose is to enhance an organization's capacity to detect problems (i.e., epistemic gaps), solve or dispose of them, share or present the solutions to others, mitigate risks as a result, and adapt. It does this by enhancing organizational learning and innovation processes.

Everything else belongs to some other discipline(s). KMCI's research, training, and consulting programs are oriented accordingly.
