A knowledge community views knowledge as a communal resource. It manages knowledge creation, development, and reuse through informal, trust-based processes within a group of individuals. They share a common interest, but they are often spread throughout the firm. This knowledge community strategy is best suited for moderately changing knowledge where the goal is to augment the knowledge of experts.
