Murali (PhD. MIS, Knowledge Management, Multimedia Uni Malaysia)
My experience from a short stint in the USA, during my PhD work suggests that the main issues with sucessfull implementation of KM initiaves are:
1. Difficulty in quantifying the value of KM and KM (systems) investment.
2. The lack of a knowledge sharing culture both intra and inter-organizations.
3. The What's in for me" syndrome - weak blending of KM initiatives to that of the benfits schemes
4. What- KM? What on earth is that? Awareness and mis-conception of the KM notion.
