The Knowledge Management Cycle book
This chapter describes the major phases involved in the knowledge management cycle, encompassing the capture, creation, codification, sharing, accessing, application, and reuse of knowledge within and between organizations. Four major approaches to KM cycles are presented from Meyer and Zack (1996), Bukowitz and Williams (2000), McElroy (2003), and Wiig (1993). A synthesis of these approaches is then developed as a framework for following the path information takes to become a valuable knowledge asset for a given organization. This chapter concludes with a discussion of the strategic and practical implications of managing knowledge throughout the KM cycle.
