- Governance: The leadership that commits to an organizational structure capable of managing the knowledge.
- Content: The quantity and quality of the data and information that is managed.
- Processes: The standards and guidelines that will be used to collect, manage, and disseminate information.
- Technology: The system supporting the other three components.
