Abstract

It is widely acknowledged that knowledge management (KM) strategy is a desired precursor to developing specific KM initiatives.

Using KM influences as a foundation, this case study describes issues involved in developing a KM strategy for the Air Force Material Command, including issues to be considered for future strategy development such as leadership support and understanding, conflicts with IT organizations, funding, technology usage and configuration, and outsourcing.
