My personal humble opinion is that KM is expanding in scope and also spawning off whole systems of sub disciplines, which link with other branches of thought.

1. Expanding KM: KM at a strategic level is expanding, linking with strategic thought and focussing on how knowledge can enhance business breakthroughs.

2. Focussed KM:
(a) IT: The KM tools market is undergoing a consolidation and the hype that has been defused is seeing tools being shaken to separate the actual KM tools from Document Management tools.

(B) Intangible Assets: Looking at the Knowledge Assets with a financial lens.

(C) Human Processes: As organizations understand the importance of learning and knowledge creation KM will move to top management and HR, and I don't think they are ready to handle the scenarios.
