Abstract

Knowledge mapping is one of the important processes in knowledge management. Before applying any knowledge mapping technique, organizations must be sure of its success and effectiveness. There are different techniques for knowledge mapping. Obviously, no technique can claim that it has an integrated approach in mapping knowledge and also it can take into account all aspects. Therefore organizations should select a mapping technique which has efficiency in them. In this paper, a framework for the selection of the most appropriate knowledge mapping technique is proposed. With use of this framework, practitioners are able to compare different techniques in order to facilitate the selection process for their organizations. The value of this framework is that, with use of it, organisations can evaluate their knowledge mapping technique with respect to the key features of it before implementing any technique as well as expending extra costs.

Keywords: knowledge mapping, comparison framework, techniques
