We welcome Tim Wieringa as a guest blogger to Green Chameleon.

Since 1999, my work has been related to Knowledge Management (KM). Already then, KM was a term that was not well recognised; at the time, we did not label our KM-related consulting services with Knowledge Management. Today I am holding an official position in Knowledge Management, still many people do not grasp the term and have a clear understanding of it. “Knowledge Management” seems to be fuzzy and not specific enough; it does not refer to daily (work) life topics.

In my comprehension, the field of Knowledge Management has a few clearly distinguished topics. With this article, I want to suggest that professionals in Knowledge Management should define a limited number of disciplines, that are concrete, easy to grasp, specific, and well-understood by people inside and outside the field of KM.

Here is a suggestion to split Knowledge Management into five disciplines.

One: Information Management & Search
This might be the classic part of Knowledge Management; the collection, storage, and distribution of information, documents, books, and intellectual property. Instead of information management, we could also call it document management and library management. Related to this is the topic of taxonomies, tagging, and other forms to classification.

It's not a management issue but the concept

Itself that is flawed.
A group of adults, all of relatively equal knowledge and expertise CAN work collaboratively, each with his/her own part of the whole assigned. They each contribute where asked or where their talents are best suited.
Students are NOT all on an equal footing and it is very plausible NONE in a given group have real proficiency in the academic area. A good student ...e or passage in that part of the musical piece. Genius is being able to understand WHY it was composed that way and what variations one can put into a written piece to make it uniquely one's own, yet stay true to the composer's vision.
Students are barely able to follow the "script" or "sheet music". They can hardly be expected to teach HOW to do so to other, even LESS proficient students.

It's a really good story

OUR breakfast table was cleared early, and Holmes waited in his dressing-gown for the promised interview. Our clients were punctual to their appointment, for the clock had just struck ten when Dr. Mortimer was shown up, followed by the young baronet. The latter was a small, alert, dark-eyed man about thirty years of age, very sturdily built, with thick black eyebrows and a strong, pugnacious fac... Times among it. The odds are enormously against your finding it. There are ten shillings over in case of emergencies. Let me have a report by wire at Baker Street before evening. And now, Watson, it only remains for us to find out by wire the identity of the cabman, No. 2704, and then we will drop into one of the Bond Street picture galleries and fill in the time until we are due at the hotel.”
