The Office of the Chief Scientist was tasked to investigate and recommend a strategy for Knowledge Management (KM) for Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC). A KM strategy can be developed as a KM vision and a list of KM principles that will support the implementation of this vision. Those two key elements are needed to orient the development of necessary actions while considering the organizational context and challenges. In the context of DRDC, the proposed KM vision and principles should orient DRDC implementation efforts to: – Seek for Science & Technology (S&T) excellence through the development of its people, processes and infra/infostructures; – Value its knowledge by making it available and easily findable; – Empower the “need to share” to enable those that “need to know”; and – Manage the DRDC knowledge to facilitate its exploitation by those that need it. Based on discussions with DRDC staff and management, KM challenges were identified. A literature review was conducted to identify recent advancements in the KM area as well as the KM approach taken by other organizations. This knowledge was used to develop a KM vision and principles for DRDC, as well as to propose eight (8) KM goals. A roadmap including an action plan for its application has also been developed.
