Knowledge management and the learning organisation are often used as synonyms in the literature. Indeed, knowledge and learning are similarly used as synonyms by some writers. In this paper, this congruence is challenged. Both learning and knowledge are problematic terms, being used to describe a range of phenomena and entities. When the multiplicity of meanings of each of these terms is unpacked, it becomes difficult to reconcile knowledge management with “real” learning. An investigation into the essence of the learning, development and the learning organisation reveals that learning is aligned more closely with liberation than it is with management in the traditional sense.
