Knowledge exists everywhere. Even in an organization where strong KM practices don't exist, there is abundance of knowledge - about products, customers, markets, and operational issues. But the existence is haphazard or unorganized.
Once the above directives are implemented existing knowledge would be captured. In a self-sustaining cycle, new opportunities would be presented for sharing the knowledge. This would ensure that the organization in question would become knowledge-intensive and ready to take on competition. Besides, the formally existing islands of knowledge would become an ocean, which just needs to be tapped for generating competitive advantage and drive organizational growth.
