The category "knowledge" is multilateral, complex, hierarchic, and is constantly developing. Knowledge development (KD) is primarily a management philosophy, which gives an account of the new economic elements based on knowledge, and introduces them to the existing and well developed, or to the brand new management instruments and approaches. This is why, before taking any initiative in the area of KD the manager should have a good understanding of their own business needs and business goals within the framework of economics based on knowledge. They need to give an account of the new areas of producing competitive advantage and differentiation from the other companies, like for example the employers' innovation and creativity, good use of the collective non-evident knowledge, etc. Only then managers will be able to ensure the appropriate and efficient instruments for KD in their business.
In relation to that, a research was made among 118 organizations, and the results regarding the environment of knowledge generation, the infrastructure of keeping knowledge, and the manner of providing knowledge in these organizations, were presented.
The research is based on the modern concept of knowledge management and distribution, as it differs with complexity and gives the ability of a modal approach. Subject of research through the empiric research are the communication techniques, procedures and infrastructure used for the implementation and use of the real knowledge development system.
