Abstract:

Knowledge management KM is composed of practices deployed by organizations to identify, create, represent, classify, and disseminate knowledge for reuse, awareness, and learning to the benefit of information users. This article demonstrates the practical integration of the principles of KM and business processes by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency DTRA. In this example, a technology-centric approach to knowledge sharing and utilization was adopted to design a simple Web-based system that provided highly needed how-to and reference information to DTRA acquisition professionals. The Acquisition ToolBooks successful development and deployment effectively integrated KM with internal process management, and it permitted a systemic review of the acquisition process for ineffective procedures and policies.
