Achieving closure through knowledge management strategy

Shaw, Duncan, Edwards, John S., Baker, Brad and Collier, Paul M. (2003). Achieving closure through knowledge management strategy. Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management, 1 (2), pp. 197-205.


Case studies of knowledge management practices are often conducted in organizations where the aim is to manage knowledge for future operational improvements. What about knowledge management for organizations with limited life-spans that are preparing for closure? Such organizations are not common but can benefit from knowledge management strategy. This case study concerns the knowledge management strategy of an organization that is preparing for its final phase of operations. We facilitated two group workshops with senior managers to scope a strategy, following which the organization initiated a set of projects to implement the resulting actions. This paper reviews their implemented actions against those designed in the workshop to shed light on knowledge management in this uncommon situation.
