What is knowledge management? Many organisations have been in existence long before Kenya got her independence in 1963 and have a lot of information within their archives. Some if not all these organisations think that knowledge management is arranging this information chronologically and in a neat room/server historically.

So, what really is knowledge management? Simply put, it is a continuous process where organisational information is collected & organised, distributed and used effectively by an organisation. There are more complicated definitions of knowledge management such as one by the Gartner Group that states: “Knowledge management is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, capturing, evaluating, retrieving, and sharing all of an enterprise’s information assets.
