Concept Analysis of Key KM topics
Select 3 (somewhat inter-related) knowledge management concepts and carry out a
concept analysis in order to better distinguish and define each term. You may choose
from the concept suggestions below. For each concept selected, outline the key
attributes, list some good examples and list some non examples. Describe the key
factors that distinguish each from the two others. Finally, propose a definition for each
term based on your analysis.
You may use the concept analysis framework presented in Chapter 1 and in the Lecture
slides for the first lecture.

Evaluation will be based on completeness, analytical criteria applied, and critical analysis
(your opinion and how well you justify them).
It is particularly important that you provide your opinion of the work, as a
student of KM.
