It is difficult to give it one simple definition because it involves all levels of organization including business strategy, organizational culture, organizational structure, technology, learning and expertise. To obtain creativity and meet the objectives as well as magnifying the merits which could result from an efficient KM, many organizations are spending a great deal of resources in launching KMS to support their knowledge work and cultivate learning behavior within organization.This book aims to examine the level of awareness and utilization of KM amongst Iranian SMEs and large enterprises.
