After a fascinating, robust and sometimes sharp discussion with Larry Prusak and Dave Snowden a couple of days ago in Kuala Lumpur on the topic “ Is Knowledge Management Dead ?&# I have come to the conclusion that I am a Lumper and they are Splitters, when it comes to the utility of the over-arching label of knowledge management.
