Abstract: Organisations are in the midst of two significant transformations: The first is the positioning of knowledge centre stage as a valuable resource and a driver of wealth creation. The second is the impact of the Internet, leading to the evolution of business into e-business. Until recently these developments were considered in isolation; but there are connections, and these are becoming increasingly apparent. This paper defines and develops the concept of a knowledge marketplace in which knowledge assets are shared and traded. It describes the business challenges associated with the design of electronic knowledge marketplaces and provides a typology of various types of knowledge sharing and trading models. Through three case studies, it illustrates how a knowledge sharing and trading model can be implemented for real-life organizations
