The Knowledge management (KM) field has been both extensively researched by academics and widely discussed by practitioners, but most of the research is limited to the case studies of one-time KM initiatives in large organisations. In this paper we propose to look at KM as a process, as a journey that a company undertakes, going through natural phases of managing explicit knowledge, knowledge sharing and creating new knowledge, which overlap, are interconnected and mutually reinforcing. The model was derived from a multiple case study of innovative companies from the energy sector and its components fit the specifics of these companies, which are shaped by their organisational characteristics and business processes.
