The current paper emphasizes the importance of knowledge sharing between people involved in the software development activity during all project phases. At the same time, the research aims to discover if other KM practices that can help achieving a successful implementation of the software project during its PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) lifecycle. A key scope of KM is to transform the tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge (that can be easier used by SE teams during the project). This task is achieved by incrementally applying all the four KM components, namely Socialization, Externalization, Combination and Internalization (Raju, 2015).
Definition of the Main Terms Used
KM represents the process of capturing, developing, sharing and using the gathered organizational knowledge in an effective manner (ensuring the best use of knowledge) with the help of a multi-disciplined approach (Davenport, 1994, pp. 119-131).
KM principles are usually wrapped in KM Systems. These represent a particular type of Information Systems “developed to provide support and enhance the organizational knowledge processes of knowledge creation, storage, retrieval, transfer and application” (Alavi & Leidner, 2001).
The knowledge that must be built and modeled by KM tools during software development activities can be either tacit or explicit. The first type of knowledge is the personal knowledge wrapped into the experience of each individual (less formal), while the latter refers is already documented and articulated through formalization rules. It is more accessible and transferable among KM users via any traditional method....
