ABCs of KM

Knowledge Bucket – an open source body of knowledge about knowledge management

The Knowledge Bucket is a higher education wiki that brings together a wide range of knowledge about knowledge management (KM).

It includes linked lists of knowledge management resources, approaches, tools and techniques, and stories of success and failure.

Knowledge management practitioners are encouraged to share, contribute, use and adapt the Knowledge Bucket materials to help build a stronger understanding of KM.

  1. Thanks for posting this Bruce. My view is that the Knowledge Bucket is an attempt to bring real world KM to tertiary students, particularity budding MBAs. It is a really helpful site for practitioners and is a KM Community resource – it is only as good as what the community feeds into it. Don’t wait for the next ‘Bucket Raid’ (when we have an activity to update some of the material). If you see a gap, make a contribution.
