The practices of directing, coordinating, and controlling knowledge-related aspects of an organization’s functioning. Necessarily they involve systematically facilitating assessment and development of the employees' expertise, promoting knowledge sharing and trust, and systematically utilizing and developing organizational memory.

The WP5 glossary defines 'knowledge management' as follows:

"Knowledge management: intends to identify, represent, codify and use various types and forms of knowledge residing in workers or groups within an organization."

As far as I understand the main difference between these definitions is due to differences in the understanding of the concept of knowledge. While the latter definition implies a rather objectivist view on knowledge, the former definition emphasises the situated nature of knowledge.
