Companies are present in an increasingly faster changing environment. To adapt to these fast changes, new models and guidelines are being used to stay contemporary in new business processes. The development has shown that an important factor for companies to be competitive is the sharing and the use of existing knowledge within the firm. To solve this problem knowledge management tool were developed to help with this problem. One of the main challenges is to convince the employees to use the tool and not the technical aspect. To investigate the implementation of knowledge management tools, Siemens was studied as a case and compared to three existing models to see how the different theoretical approaches are and how a knowledge management platform was implemented in a company. During the investigation the models showed strong and weak points which were combined into a new model. The new model shows a framework with all the important steps featured to provide a template that can be used by companies working in various fields.
