Abstract

For many companies reuse of knowledge is considered to be an important objective in order to get knowledge management initiatives off the ground. The aim of these companies is to let people learn from one another. To avoid situations where people are constantly reinventing the wheel it is better to record the knowledge of in-house experts and disseminate it further throughout the company. This way, consultants can solve problems much more quickly and pass this information on to their clients. Reusing information and not reinventing the wheel are frequently heard arguments. For this purpose, companies create both social and technical networks in order to stimulate knowledge exchange.
