We sometimes confuse knowledge for wisdom by using the terms interchangably. A good way to distinguish the terms is to consider knowledge as insight and context into a specific topic. And wisdom is applying understanding and judgement in the application of knowledge. With that distinction, what it means to “manage knowledge” can be viewed with better clarity. Knowledge management becomes an attention to stewardship of our insight – so that it can be applied with sufficient understanding and judgement.
