Abstract

Knowledge management on learning organizations is a broad area that still needs more research in order to offer to organizations a set of methodologies, technologies and strategies that allow them to capitalise their knowledge. This paper proposes as a solution the development of a transactive memory system to allow organizations and their members to collectively encode, store, and retrieve knowledge in a smart manner, where every piece of knowledge could be accessible to all organization members in order to help them to perform their daily activities, and at the same time to allow organizations to assess the quality of their knowledge as well as to represent, use and reuse all their know-how towards their organizational and business goals.
