Research problem discussed in this chapter refers to simulation model for verification communication effectiveness. Communication and knowledge management processes usually suffer from susceptibilities or malfunctions. These result in delays, communicate distortion and reduced efficiency of knowledge-to-use transformation. Thereupon, organizational goals’ achievement, staff engagement and overall management efficiency are lowered. Hence, there is a need for comprehensive, ready-to-use model for application of communication and knowledge management processes. Model that allows to determine assumptions. Boundaries and simulating behavior of real communication and knowledge management processes. In this chapter, only graph modeling part derived from general ATENA model will be discussed.
