However, while the approach of technological determinism is useful in that it provides a perspective on IT and organisational change, it does not tell the whole story.

1998). However, as knowledge is an interdisciplinary field incorporating many disciplines such as philosophy, economics, management, information technology, psychology, and artificial intelligence, it is not surprising that there are many views and definitions (Ponelis and Fairer-Wessels 1998). From the perspective of knowledge management – and assuming for the moment that knowledge is capable of being managed in the conventional sense – what is important is not the precise words used to define knowledge but rather an appreciation of the range of practical issues embraced by the terms (KPMG 1998c).
