Knowledge Management Theoretical Frameworks: A Critique

Dr. Chipo Mutongi


Abstract: This article is targeted at knowledge management students and scholars and everyone who is interested in understanding the theoretical aspects of knowledge management. It assists organisations in the effective and efficient knowledge management. The paper analyses some existing knowledge theories but not all and brings out a new knowledge management model. It is not enough to just regard knowledge as a justified true brief. Knowledge is not fixed and can change with time though there can still be some knowledge that can remain fixed. Pratos knowledge theory, Piaget and constructivism as well as positivism theories will be examined in this paper. These theories implications and gaps will be demonstrated.
