Summary/Abstract: Defining knowledge is not an easy job because it is one of those concepts that don’t have a universal definition. It can be looked upon as the processing of information with the main purpose of gaining understanding of the events occurring in the surrounding environment. It is a concept deeply influenced by the personality of the holder, its beliefs, attitudes and culture. Knowledge is dynamic, it moves up and down, it becomes obsolete easily hence the challenge for companies to understand how they can use it in order to gain a competitive advantage. The main purpose of this paper is to present the processes of transformation that knowledge undergoes into an organization, its dynamics and how companies can use it into their advantage.
