Abstract

This article proposes a methodology as an initial step for the development of a knowledge management strategy within an SME dedicated to electrical installations in the construction industry. This process consists of three key steps: a) starting with an observation process; b) applying a survey to project participants, and; c) using a knowledge management maturity assessment tool. These study instruments are expected to provide insight about the state of the organization in terms of knowledge management, identifying enablers, barriers, areas of opportunity and good practices that favor the establishment of the discipline of knowledge management in the company.
