BA is a term learned from the far-eastern culture and its Knowledge Management. BA, translated as "space" is a "shared area intended for enhancing/developing relationships". The BA can be physical, such as a coffee spot at organizations or an assembly room for professional forums. It can be a virtual BA such an internet chat-room. Yet it can also be spiritual, such as the work process, in which informal relationships develop (e.g. between suppliers and customers). The BA is of course fertile ground for creating new knowledge.
