Knowledge management is essentially about getting the right knowledge to the right person at the right time. 
This in itself may not seem so complex, but it implies a strong tie to corporate strategy, understanding of where and in what forms knowledge exists, creating processes that span organizational functions, and ensuring that initiatives are accepted and supported by organizational members. 
Knowledge management may also include new knowledge creation, or it may solely focus on knowledge sharing, storage, and refinement. 
For a more comprehensive discussion and definition, see my knowledge management definition.
It is important to remember that knowledge management is not about managing knowledge for knowledge's sake.

The overall objective is to create value and to leverage, improve, and refine the firm's competences and knowledge assets to meet organizational goals and targets. Implementing knowledge management thus has several dimensions including:

KM Strategy: 
Knowledge management strategy must be dependent on corporate strategy. The objective is to manage, share, and create relevant knowledge assets that will help meet tactical and strategic requirements.

Organizational Culture:
 The organizational culture influences the way people interact, the context within which knowledge is created, the resistance they will have towards certain changes, and ultimately the way they share (or the way they do not share) knowledge.

Organizational Processes: 
The right processes, environments, and systems that enable KM to be implemented in the organization.

Management & Leadership: 
KM requires competent and experienced leadership at all levels. There are a wide variety of KM-related roles that an organization may or may not need to implement, including a CKO, knowledge managers, knowledge brokers and so on. More on this in the section on KM positions and roles

 The systems, tools, and technologies that fit the organization's requirements - properly designed and implemented.

The long-term support to implement and sustain initiatives that involve virtually all organizational functions, which may be costly to implement (both from the perspective of time and money), and which often do not have a directly visible return on investment.

Aren't you curious on WHAT Knowledge Management is?

I bet you guys do.
Look nowhere else.  Here it is.

Knowledge Management (KM) is a concept where organization’s knowledge – mainly documents, resources and also the human capital, are being gathered, organized, shared and analysed consciously in comprehensive manners.  The tasks includes data searching and some operational methods to give out the information to the targeted audiences.
In order to address the organizational needs, KM will handles the survey in which it involves the corporation’s goals and also an in-depth examination on both traditional and technical tools .
Like any other things, Knowledge Management also has goals for its existence.  One of it is to enables the managers to sort and detect the relevant organizational contents and also to locate the expertise needed to work out the right business projects and tasks. Another goal of KM is to come up with a map known as 'knowledge map report' or 'KM dashboard' through the analysis of the relationships between activities, topics, contents and also people 

In a much simpler form, KM functions as the process that captures, distribute and effectively use the knowledge (Davenport, 1994).

So, do you find this post made it easier for you to understand what KM is? If it so, we're glad you did.

See you again in another post :)
