Success Factors in Knowledge Management

By Heather Creech on May 3, 2007
This IISD Knowledge Communications Practice Note explores what success means in strengthening knowledge management practices. There is ongoing debate in the field of knowledge management about whether it is possible to set standards or benchmarks for knowledge management practices, and what those standards might be. Nevertheless, there are a number of knowledge management practices that appear consistently across a variety of organizations, regardless of structure and mandate.

These notes were originally prepared as background for a study on knowledge mobilization for IUCN - The World Conservation Union. For more information on the full study, click here.
