Abstract: To establish Knowledge Management (KM) in the organisation, one has to consider three functions. Depending on the organisation roles, knowledge exchange styles and organisation needs, one is able to develop different forms of KM. This research undertook interviews with six managers in an organisation that has implemented KM and analyses how this was successfully carried out. The paper then makes recommendations as to how other organisations can carry this out. The findings in this research would be beneficial to the managers in developing countries and to managers at the simple level of KM implementation.

Keywords: knowledge management; KM implementation; China; corporate knowledge; knowledge sharing; knowledge exchange.
