A research project to investigate the usefulness of the knowledge management paradigm in shaping information systems strategy for third sector organisations is described. The top down knowledge management concept may be more relevant for third sector organisations in determining their approaches to information, but existing frameworks for knowledge management adoption in the public and for profit sectors need to be evaluated to assess their suitability for the values driven third sector.
