Improve decision making within public services, help the people to join in public decision making, develop societal IC capabilities and improve knowledge competitive work forces are the four public administration knowledge management areas to be considered. To server these four purposes many KM approaches are adopted.  

Business Schools is the conceptual framework in knowledge management context. This framework is adopted to improve the quality of knowledge sharing in business schools. KM tools are implemented in India’s Test Institute of Management to support B-School framework.  KM helps to take more informed decisions. Insight and innovation comes from free flow of ideas which is the main aspect encouraged by this KM concept. KM improves the productivity and also enhances customer service and efficiency. KM helps to reduce redundancy in work by avoiding re-invention of wheel every time.  But, for some times KM is not capable to deliver expected performance.

Issues regarding strategy, technology and organizational culture are raised to the organization which implements knowledge management. Despite of these issues, companies in both public and private sector have shown much interest to implement knowledge management concept.
