Successes of KM initiative depend on several factors which include leadership, organizational culture, IT infrastructure, positive attitudes of the employees to share expertise and so on. As successful KM initiatives implies a good combination of both human participation and IT collaboration tools, understanding and measuring people’s perception on various KM issues is a pre-requisite.

The study also focuses on employees’ personal attitudes towards sharing expertise with peers. A survey was conducted among the employees and statistical analysis was done to determine participant’s perception on KM.
