Kick Start Knowledge Management

Delhi K-Community Learning Session


Knowledge management can be defined as "the harnessing of a company's collective expertise wherever it resides and the distribution of that expertise to the right people at the right time. It's not a product but a process-the process of gathering, managing, and sharing your employees' knowledge capital.“

- GartnerGroup
