This chapter explains knowledge management’s (KM) role for competitive advantage as a means of new business requirement in the knowledge-based society. It argues that KM, combined with new information technologies, determines new approaches of business strategy, knowledge leadership, culture, management content, organizational structure, technology and innovation, which are key enablers for competitive advantage. In addition, these are discussed in the case of a virtual organization (Network of Excellence) for building the knowledge sharing culture, based on interaction of the management functions and stages of the knowledge creation process. Furthermore, the authors hope that understanding the main issues and trends of KM as an essential element of business integration for obtaining a considerable competitive advantage will not only inform researchers but also assist them in developing new approaches for attending efficiency in the new global virtual organizations.
