This study reviews the definition and development of Knowledge Management (KM) and discusses the differences of knowledge sharing and knowledge seeking in KM. Knowledge sharing has long been regarded as the most important factor in Knowledge Management implementations. However, this research discussed the three barriers of existing knowledge sharing in KM. Based on this discussion, it is proposed by authors that it is the knowledge seeking rather than knowledge sharing that plays the crucial role in KM.
