Defining and implementing the correct knowledge management processes involves numerous steps and decisions. Knowledge management in network needs to be tailored to specific situations and consequently general guidelines are hard to give. However, the key problems and solution concepts have been defined. These building blocks provide the manager with the tools to build knowledge management processes that fit the needs of a specific network. Perfection should not be strived for: networks are too complex to assume knowledge can be managed perfectly. Finally, it must be realized that it is a legitimate goal for companies to restrict knowledge flows to other companies. Tactics on how to achieve this have been defined.
