Abstract

This chapter seeks to determine the criteria that lead to the excellence of knowledge management in the public sector. The authors discuss issues of what exactly knowledge means and how knowledge management is defined, how an organization will capture, preserve, and diffuse knowledge, and why knowledge management is ultimately important for predictable future developments. Knowledge management is considered a prerequisite for achieving innovation and competitiveness both within and outside the organization as it promotes the consolidation of an organization in the long term with a clear focus on strategic importance. Likewise, knowledge management programs can be applied to different areas of an organization in the public sector. However, it should be mentioned that the difficulties that arise in their implementation are many, as various concerns arise, which are directly related to the equal mappings of knowledge and its measurement.
