Like no other management strategy, effective KM relies on acceptance from the people within your organisation, introducing appropriate processes to facilitate and encourage knowledge capture and management, and integration of the right technology and tools for the job.

Each of the key stages is explored, the potential pitfalls are explained, the necessary research is outlined and all relevant resources that will help you in reaching your targets are listed at length including associations, communities, news feeds, periodicals and training providers.
Implementing a successful KM programme will:
- Take you through identifying the drivers for a KM plan;
- Help you answer the 9 key questions that will define the parameters, tools and requirements of your km programme;
- Use those answers to plan your new KM strategy;
- Provide a detailed list of commitments you must gain from senior management to ensure buy-in at every level of the organisation;
- Demonstrate how to create and execute your implementation plan;
- Look in-depth at all of the people, process and technology components you will need to utilise;
- Provide a basic understanding of how to create, build and sustain knowledge sharing communities.
