Abstract

Without a sound business case, securing resources for knowledge management is difficult. When organizations do not devote the necessary resources to knowledge management efforts, it is often not due to a lack of resources, but rather because managers have not made an appealing business case. In this article, the author outlines guidelines on how to tie knowledge management efforts to an organization's goals, objectives and key performance indicators.
