    Abstract: Purpose – This article aims to define and explore the nature of wisdom, managerial wisdom, organisational wisdom and wisdom management. Design/methodology/approach – The paper draws on some of the diverse writings on wisdom, and explores the relevance of wisdom in the context of knowledge management. Findings – Wisdom has received little attention in the information management and systems, knowledge management and management literature. This is surprising since in this knowledge-based economy the link between data, information and knowledge is seen as pivotal by practitioners, consultants and academics. Originality/value – The article explores the nature of organisational wisdom and identifies a number of areas for further theory-making and empirical investigation.
