Abstract

Organisations were always keen to capture and manage what they know. However, the cost and effort was often deemed overwhelming compared to anticipated benefits. In today’s environment, when organisational settings are more fluid and complex, formal mechanisms for identifying and utilising knowledge become an absolute imperative in order to support effective operation. The field of knowledge management (KM) emerged in response to these organisational imperatives. Theories, tools and techniques from a range of reference disciplines, which traditionally focused on organisational issues, was called upon to deal with the cognitive, social and technical needs required to manage the knowledge life cycle. KM is therefore a truly multidisciplinary area of research that requires rigour and relevance to address the organisational imperatives
