Abstract

Knowledge plays a key role in the information revolution. Major challenges are to select the information from numerous sources and transform it into useful knowledge. In this context and in an economy strongly focused on the "Knowledge", take the turn of Knowledge Management becomes a strategic issue for the survival of organizations. However, the researches in knowledge management focus mainly on the creation, capitalization, and knowledge transfer process. Researchers are, too, centred on the establishment of the knowledge management process in companies, but little about interaction between the knowledge management process and the risk management process. In this paper, we propose a new model to reduce the risk of projects guided by the knowledge management process represented by the GAMETH method. We apply our approach to ammonia industry presented by the Algerian-Spanish company - FERTIAL.
