You are probably already aware of the field of Information Engineering and
Data Modelling. In case you do not know about these, I thought I would
mention them to you.

I am sure this field does not meet all of your systems requirements, but
it does help a great deal to see how information and knowledge elements
relate to each other.

One of the weaknesses of data modelling is that it does not portray the
dynamics of knowledge capture, movement, creation, etc.

But it does help us link organization strategy and mission to what the
organization does by defining what information is required if the mission
is to be achieved.

Hope this gives you a useful thought.
