Wipro Technologies is an Indian information technology outsourcing company that, over a two year period, established a knowledge management initiative that enables it to build a competitive advantage as it experiences rapid growth in its global market. The Wipro story is remarkable in that it shows that having a sound, innovative knowledge management effort is no longer merely an option but rather a core necessity for any organization anywhere in the world if it is to compete successfully and survive globally. Wipro’s CEO said the knowledge initiative must be based on knowledge sharing and collaboration and this has to be translated into delivering value to the customer, in terms of: speed, being able to deploy for the customer, and innovative products and services which are focused on the customer needs. The knowledge initiative has been implemented across all areas of the firm in all its locations around the world.
