The external knowledge acquisition and the internal knowledge transfer are both critical to the development of organisational knowledge stock. The two processes must be managed closely together if the effect of knowledge stock development for innovation is to be maximised. However, it is often a challenge to many organisations to realise their knowledge stock. Using a design science research methodology, this paper considers the problem of enabling knowledge transfer through the assessment of knowledge stock. Our contribution in this research-in-progress paper is to present a conceptual framework for knowledge transfer enabling innovation. We develop a Decision Support System (DSS) prototype to identify knowledge stock measured in terms of ICT skills using the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). We simulate the DSS prototype to measure knowledge stock at individual and organisational level. A comprehensive evaluation of the DSS in the knowledge management context is planned for future research.
