Knowledge Management (KM) consists of a set of concepts, techniques and tools for creating, representing, distributing and evolving knowledge within an organizational context. This knowledge may be about the domain (e.g., cars and the car market for an auto maker), the organization itself (e.g., its current state, objectives, plans, finances), but also about insights and experiences of its members. This knowledge may be explicit in documents or other artifacts, implicit in members of the organization, or embedded in organisational processes or practices. KM is an established discipline since the early ’90s [Nonaka94] and is taught in the fields of business administration, information systems, management, and library and information sciences.
