ICKM 2008 - Is KM Dead?

The presenter defines KM as the process of creating the same set of tools and practices that allow for good research for the knowledge worker. This is an interesting perspective on KM, as it moves the focus off submission and on to the process of using knowledge.

One way he defends that KM is not dead, is situations of the term within articles and publications. For Business, this does not look like a fad. Fads (BPR, TQM) show a hump like curve on this chart. Business still looks like it is climbing, with some peaks and valleys, but not a hump. Education shows it as a fad, so it is not catching on in the education arena. Why? Because they are already doing this today.
