Abstract

This paper introduces research in Knowledge Management (KM) that is being carried out at the headquarters of The Danwood Group, Lincoln, UK as part of a collaborative doctoral training scheme with the Department of Computer Science, Loughborough University. The research project has been divided into five major phases; the first phase consisting of a pilot study in KM and the remaining four phases dealing with vital KM issues such as strategy, technology, culture and measurement. The pilot phase of this project revealed high levels of fragmentation in the KM discipline, which underlined the need for a change of focus from pursuing a commonly accepted definition of KM to identifying the purpose of KM within an organisational context. The primary aim of this research project is to define a KM framework and methodology that will have the ability to adapt and aid an organisation in achieving its stated goals.
