The practice of knowledge management (KM) continues to grow within the Department of Defense; however, while the other services have substantially matured in KM, the United States Marine Corps (USMC) has not. Most organizations today leverage information systems and technology to their advantage for increasing information and knowledge flow, and overall KM. The problem is that USMC units do not appear to be leveraging knowledge as effectively as they could, and as other services do, to address the national knowledge issue and dilemma. The purpose of this research is to identify current courses of action that the USMC is taking to mature its KM, to diagnose pathologies preventing USMC units from capitalizing on the power of KM, and to identify a framework for small-unit level implementation.
