Learning processes are essential in building individual and organisational competencies and transfer of learning and knowledge among individual and organisational learning space. Several types of learning technologies are now available for systematic building of individual and organisational competencies through formal and non-formal learning processes. This chapter examines the need for competency-based management systems that provides organizations to implement such learning processes through web-based e-learning technologies that are most conducive for creating and building systematic knowledge transfers across individuals and groups. It is argued that the transfer of knowledge, learning and learning interactions through such technologies is a seamless process that reinforces continual renewal of knowledge and learning through appropriate management systems. Such systems are created by deliberate interventions for individual and organisational learning and should be context and content specific.
