According to wikipedia Knowledge management (KM) comprises a range of strategies and practices used in an organization to identify, create, represent, distribute, and enable adoption of insights and experiences. Such insights and experiences comprise knowledge, either embodied in individuals or embedded in organizations as processes or practices.
Bellinger, Gene says:
The value of Knowledge Management relates directly to the effectiveness with which the managed knowledge enables the members of the organization to deal with today’s situations and effectively envision and create their future.

The knowledge management framework we use was originally based on work by van der Spek and de Hoog. It covers
- identifying what knowledge assets a company possesses
- Where is the knowledge asset?
- What does it contain?
- What is its use?
- What form is it in?
- How accessible is it?
- analysing how the knowledge can add value
- What are the opportunities for using the knowledge asset?
- What would be the effect of its use?
- What are the current obstacles to its use?
- What would be its increased value to the company?
- specifying what actions are necessary to achieve better usability & added value
- How to plan the actions to use the knowledge asset?
- How to enact actions?
- How to monitor actions?
- reviewing the use of the knowledge to ensure added value
- Did the use of it produce the desired added value?
- How can the knowledge asset be maintained for this use?
