Abstract
Defence R&D Canada undertook a knowledge management audit to determine how well it managed knowledge creation and use and what could be done to improve the use and leveraging of knowledge. A qualitative study was employed using a purposeful random sample and an interview format. Five themes emerged from the results: - There is a need to focus on the organizational mission and clarify priorities; - Information management tools are required as essential building blocks in a Defence R&D Canada knowledge management initiative; - Sharing in-house expertise is critical for knowledge leveraging, business development, cross-disciplinary work and efficiencies; - Enhanced exchange of foreign information is required to supplement informal exchanges; - and a mutual vision for future technology planning is needed for Defence R&D Canada and the Canadian Forces clients.
