In common usage, a knowledge management system is typically a form of specialized technology, based on either a custom database of knowledge, and/or a network of expertise in various relevant areas. Additional knowledge is created by activities and sharing of information, 'communities of practice', (people with common interests) social media, and internet information access. In practice, knowledge management needs to draw on information from a wide variety of sources, and achieve an organized usage of this knowledge, so a local system will be largely customized.
Examples of Knowledge Management System:
Internship-style job structures
Communities of practice in the workplace or professions
