Abstract

Most scholars and KM practitioners describe implementation in quite positive terms, such as making KM strategy happen, putting ideas into practice or turning drawing broad KM strategies into reality. Ironically research has mainly used descriptions of failures, mistakes, and breakdowns of implementation, Nevertheless there is now a rich and diverse heritage from a variety of social sciences to discuss KM implementation issues, processes and outcomes. This paper summarises and critically analyses the main streams of thinking about KM implementation issues and calls for a radical change in the way research is done.
