Abstract:

This work examines the information sharing between the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Army when planning overseas operations. It looks at examples of collaboration and identifies where knowledge management tools and systems were used and where they could be used in the future. The focus of the study is on identifying barriers to use and incremental first steps that could be taken given the background of the problem of interagency knowledge sharing. The emphasis of the conclusions and recommendations is on technical and easily implemented steps that could be taken by both the U.S. Army and the Department of State to change existing methods of knowledge sharing by using new technology or adapting current practices and processes at different levels.
