Background

A number of typologies have been offered for business strategies over the years. One of the early and frequently used in the business strategy literature, is the one offered by Porter (1985) that used two dimensions for business strategy classification: the competitive advantage (price and diversification) and the scope of the market (whole versus niche). Another typology that is frequently used when describing the international business strategies, using (number of versions of this subject were developed) for example: customer’s price sensitivity and customer responsiveness dimensions (e.g., Bartlett & Ghoshall, 1989).

Also, a number of typologies were offered for knowledge typologies (see for example the discussion in Ein-Dor, 2006) but we are not aware of any typology that was proposed for framing the discussion of KM strategies in the context of business strategies.
