I have been very fond of the term "context" in talking about knowledge management for a variety of reasons. But I hadn't thought much about the definition.
I was reading something today that just clicked for me. Context provides a frame of reference to what you are reading or hearing. The better I understand the particular frame of reference (context), the better I can understand what this information or knowledge means.
It's an obvious definition, but it just made a whole lot of sense today.
