The Difference Between Knowledge Management and Information Management

  • Focuses on facts, figures and other hard data
  • Can be easily measured quantitatively
  • Information is easy to replicate, or copy
  • Is technology-based
  • Information and facts do not convey an opinion or a course of action.
  • Focuses more on how the information is captured, shared, analysed and understood by the organisation.
  • Incorporates all aspects of an enterprise, including communication, management frameworks, organizational culture and organizational structures
  • Is measured by the changes in the behavior and the work of individuals and teams over time
  • Knowledge management leads to innovations unique to the company
  • Is more people and process based
  • Knowledge is passed from person to person, through interaction, collaboration, mentoring, etc.
  • Focus on locating, understanding, enabling, and encouraging — by creating environments, cultures, processes, etc. where knowledge is shared and created.
  • Is hard to copy — The connection to experience and context makes knowledge extremely difficult to copy.
