Abstract

During the past decade knowledge management is emerging as one of the most important and widespread management issues. The knowledge contained in people's heads and organizational structures is seen as a valuable asset that needs to be developed and leveraged. Unfortunately, efficient and effective knowledge management still is the exception. As a result of several surveys certain barriers against an efficient knowledge management can be identified, e.g., lack of knowledge management skill and lack of understanding knowledge management and its benefits. Obviously, it takes time to learn new methods and techniques and to apply them until they become embedded. Therefore, we point out the need for an adequate didactical method. We present a computer supported simulation game approach, which supports the implementation of a holistic knowledge management.
