Starting Date: 01/2012

Project Goals: The research group "Global Knowledge Research Network", with members from over 30 countries, started in 2011 a review of the state of knowledge management practices in academic research, as well as in the organizational practice, intending to identify the challenges and needs of future research in the area of knowledge management.

By studying this problem, we intended to improve knowledge management in Portuguese organizations and thus, contribute to the development of more talented performances, capable of being a source of competitive advantage and enhance business performance.

Thus, we sought to lay the foundations to expand the knowledge of the state of knowledge management in Portugal, with a view to identifying future actions that allow the use of knowledge management more competitively.

Project Outputs: As outputs of this project several papers were published and a Workshop was held at Leeds Business School.
