With the above in mind, this study aims to explore and ascertain the knowledge management practices at the University of Botswana. The main objectives of the study were to: identify the valuable/critical knowledge; the major knowledge management initiatives; the existence of basic KM infrastructure; and, establish the major challenges faced at the University of Botswana in the successful implementation of KM.
