Knowledge management (KM) is a multidisciplinary subject, with contributions from such disciplines as information systems (IS) and information technology (IT), strategic management, organizational theory, human-resource management, education science, psychology, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence. In order to take full advantage of these various contributions, the necessity of a multidisciplinary approach to KM is currently widely acknowledged, particularly in the IS and IT, management, and artificial-intelligence communities (Alavi & Leidner, 2001; Dieng-Kuntz et al., 2001; Grover & Davenport, 2001; Nonaka & Konno, 1998; O’Leary & Studer, 2001; Zacklad & Grundstein, 2001).
