23 2. Active knowledge management systems “Future orientation" Anticipates future buyer/seller behavior (e.g. market back R&D).

24 Proactive knowledge management systems: 1. Enhance efficiency through time and cost savings. 2. Link “voice of the consumer” to all stages of product development, production and distribution through the value chain

25 Internal and external knowledge management systems give greater competitive advantage

26 Possible challenges in implementing Knowledge Management in SMEs Time for development actions. Culture, motivation of staff, and ability of the management team to share ideas and discuss strategic issues.
