Why Do Great KM Programs Fail?

Check to make sure that your KM program is well managed, with clear goals, vibrant communities of practice, effective use of IT and social media (though without excessive reliance on IT), and valid metrics of the KM program’s contributions.

 That’s what you need to do.
