Many organisations today are making large investments in their information systems to enhance the creation and sharing of knowledge among individuals in the organisation. Despite such large investments and concerted efforts by managers, many of these attempts to build corporate knowledge management systems (advanced information systems built to support systematically a company’s effort to manage knowledge) have not been able to produce the intended return on investment. The symptoms of wasted investment vary from a total abandonment of the system to the accumulation of a large body of irrelevant and outdated static documents that yield little practical value to the intended users.
