Knowledge Management (KM) efforts aim at leveraging an organization into a knowledge organization thereby presenting knowledge employees with a very powerful tool; organized valuable knowledge accessible when and where needed in flexible, technologically-enhanced modes. The attainment of this aim, i.e., the transformation into a knowledge organization, depends on a number of critical success factors. One of these critical factors is the promotion of a knowledge-friendly organizational culture. This paper investigates the elements which synthesize a knowledge-friendly and simultaneously KM-enabling culture. Special interest is put on how such a culture is shaped in an educational setup.
