We are in the information age and as the demand for information and knowledge increases so did the need to access, process and disseminate knowledge and information effectively increases. This has led to the development of a process called Knowledge management. It is a high trending topic in industries and academic establishments globally similar to the buzz created by cloud computing in the information technology world. There is an array of definitions for knowledge management which is because of its dynamic nature. According to (Charles & Chauvel, 1999) knowledge management is clearly on a slippery slope of being intuitively important yet intellectually elusive: * Important because, “With rare exceptions, the productivity of a modern corporation or nation lies more in its intellectual and system capabilities than in its hard assets...” (Quinn et al.,1996) as cited by (Charles & Chauvel, 1999) * Elusive because, “To define knowledge in a non-abstract and non-sweeping way seems to be very
