In a business organisation knowledge may be a blend of data, information and individual expertise of an employee, but in Jaina knowledge management system, the whole Jain community of Sthanakvasi Sect is treated as an organisation. Knowledge given by the Tirthankaras, systemized by Gandharas is treated as knolwedge asset, these two supreme most authorities of the community are knowledge developers. A comparative analysis of modern and Jaina KM systen has been done by the author.
