Abstract

A growing notion these days is that organizational competitiveness is determined largely by effective management of its most important intangible asset “knowledge”. The success of Knowledge Management (KM) initiatives is leveraged by the application of Knowledge management systems (KMS) that effectively create, share and use knowledge through KM techniques. KM research, however, has focused more only on these factors to ascertain organizational competitive advantage. There has been little research on applying modelling to understand benefits derived by knowledge workers of such systems. In this research paper, we map a KMS Success model using System Dynamics tools to better understand the structure of the model identifying the key variables. The paper concludes with the main observations from this research and proposes some lines for further research in this area. This paper intends to fuel a thought about KMS working via System Dynamics
