"tend to regard knowledge as an object"
The corollary is that information and knowledge are identical, and that providing knowledge(information) is sufficient to create the behavior you want. To me this seems like something built into our educational system, at least at the K-12 levels.

David Locke

When IT systems start talking anytime, anywhere, then KM people start talking the same way. Never mind that data and information are explicit. Knowledge might be explicit, but most of it isn't explicit. The only knowledge that can be anytime, anywhere is explicit knowledge.

This is another example of IT and training people getting into KM by skewing the definition of knowledge. This situation gets old fast.
