From the Abstract: "Knowledge creation is the key to an adaptive and innovative organisation. Leveraging knowledge in a Defence Organisation faces many barriers as well as acting as a catalyst for growth in strategic and operational environments. Command and control depends on the effective creation, management, sharing and use of knowledge. Collaboration in a knowledge enabled environment is essential to the adaptive and creative command and control required in the post Cold War World. Although the possibility of conventional war is relatively low in the Australian Theatre, an upsurge in intra-state conflicts and the varied responses of humanitarian relief, evacuations, peace-keeping and peace enforcement place heavy demands on a relatively small Defence Force. The study of knowledge management (KM) in Australian Defence examined how the senior decision making elements of the organisation created, captured, organised, accessed, shared and used tacit (implicit) knowledge. This paper reports on the findings and recommendations for knowledge improvement."
