    Abstract

    Knowledge and its management require significant attention within the majority of twenty-first century organisations. One approach to managing knowledge is to use traditional management strategies of frameworks, policies and standards. In line with this approach, an Australian Standard for Knowledge Management was published in 2005. This research paper reports an investigation of the use of standards and frameworks for knowledge management in the government sector and finds that their use is sporadic, fragmented, discerning and opportunistic.
