Useful tools for knowledge management are presented in the guide.

We refer especially to the modules presented in 4 –Creativity techniques.  Also 11 - Networking, present tools related to KM, such as 11.3 Communities of Practise (CoPs) or 11.4 Social network analyses.

KM requires a culture in the organisation that promotes initiative and knowledge sharing. You will find information specifically in 10.2 company’s culture but also in 4.1 introductions to creativity and 4.6 management of innovative proposals.

These both chapters, 4.1 and 4.6 also provide  detailed information on incentive systems which can be used for promoting KM as well as on other motivating factors.
