According to the United Nations, “eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development”. However, KM mainly focuses on solving ‘tame&#039; organisational problems, rather than addressing “wicked” social problems. Arguably, KM was not designed to solve wicked problems. However, a rethinking of KM is needed to ensure that we do not continue to improve organisational performance that enriches companies at the expense of society. 6B9FDA011878990C8025855A003B53B9 Thu, 30 Apr 2020 11:48:00 +0100 David Gurteen
