Gaining and sustaining competitive advantage through knowledge sharing and network-based knowledge processes is a process involving the tasks of formulating a strategic vision, formulating a knowledge vision, identifying relevant knowledge, designing the knowledge process, catering for knowledge protection, implementing the process, and using the system. The focus of this paper is twofold. Firstly, we apply a strategic knowledge management framework, aimed at evaluating the effect of such processes, on an empirical case. Secondly, we discuss the results of our appliance of the framework and propose some further issues to be resolved.
