Effect of knowledge management on organizational learning and organizational knowledge.

I am tasked with discussing the relationship between organizational learning and organizational knowledge and the effect of knowledge management on organizational learning and organizational knowledge.

I am required to draw on the articles listed below to support my argument or to argue against points made in the articles and draw on any additional material that is found.

QUOTES:

Lead off your essay with one or two of the quotes from the knowledge quotes/wisdom quotes that you think best illustrates the core of the argument in your essay. These are the quotes that I chose:

"A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more that much knowledge that is idle." - Kahlil Gibran

"Knowledge is of two kinds: we know a subject ourselves, or we know where to find information upon it". - Samuel Johnson.

At some point in the essay, explain why you chose the quote or quotes that you chose. (Note that most of the quotes implicitly refer to the knowledge of a single human being but many of them can be extended to apply to organizations.)

Please provide me with information on this topic as well as thoughts or suggestions on the quotes that I chose. Here are a few related sites on the subject to pull information to assist me with this task:
