Green Chameleon

Traditionally, KM was more often than not a top-down driven approach. For example, document taxonomies and knowledge sharing procedures were defined; identified experts shared their knowledge in defined communities. Today, we can identify six strong trends that lead into new concepts of knowledge sharing and collaboration: Exploring. This trend is about empowering employees; providing them an open platform to express opinions and share expertise.

or the dreaded "KM Architecture" (there might be one or more - but it is not an IT architecture in the traditional sense - I would consider a patterns-based argument for KM though). Technology is the tail wagging the dog when it comes to knowledge management - it always has been.
