Abstract

Many taxonomies and definitions of knowledge have been published in the KM literature. This chapter defines knowledge as something that is multidimensional and existent on a continuum. Four dimensions describing knowledge are proposed—explicitness, reach, life cycle, and flow time—and a modeling method is discussed. The chapter concludes with a call for research in the dimensionality of knowledge.
