Abstract

This paper examines whether organisations' action plans for knowledge management are likely to be implemented, by revisiting eleven organisations that developed knowledge management action plans as part of a previous study. The findings are that although the majority have made progress in knowledge management, implementation of the plans has been only partial. In at least two cases, knowledge management is now less advanced than when the plans were drawn up two to three years earlier. A staged approach to implementing knowledge management seems to be essential for success.
