Abstract: Knowledge management requires an understanding of what knowledge is before the management can be meaningful. This paper observes how modules are identified and combined to form solutions in other systems. Once these infonomes and infomemes are identified through decomposition, perhaps a more precise cause-effect mapping may be used for a more efficient information management. Finally, this paper proposes an |I wonder| list to help assess the true information needs.

Keywords: information management; knowledge decomposition; knowledge management; modular combination; infonomes; infomemes; cause and effect.
