Today we live in a transitional period, where the main features are: international competition, radical technological changes, faster flow of information and communication, the increasing complexity of business and the expansion of “globalization.”

The rapidly changing and intensely competitive environment, companies are required to meet the new demands presented. We are entering an era where the traditional pillars of economic power, namely capital, land, raw materials and technology, are not the determining factors of success in a business. The future is determined now by the ability to explore the most valuable resource, business knowledge (22).
