Nowadays, knowledge is an important factor for people to gain distinctive advantages in
present society; through training, coaching and education, people can develop their skills, abilities and attitudes, to gain those distinctive advantages. Through knowledge, people get better jobs, higher compensation and more wealth. Knowledge is a key-driver for people, to survive in this knowledge intensive world; more knowledge means more power.

There has been a shift from “knowledge is power” to “knowledge-sharing is power”. This new phenomenon is the subject of many researchers and recent studies. The effect of this new trend is that knowledge is becoming an organization’s key resource, to gain competitive advantage. Managers strive to transform the traditional organization into a “learning-organization”, to realize organizational success.
