The concept of Learning Collaborative Networked Organizations merges both the CNO and the LO paradigms. It aims at augmenting the quality of decision-making and of corporate governance taking inter-organizational knowledge into account. The rationale behind the proposal is that CNOs are still lacking research and work for enhancing their agility where rapid decision-making is crucial for achieving their goals. In this paper knowledge management is proposed as an approach for tackling this problem. The paper presents the first step for a framework for gathering information and for generating new knowledge dynamically according to what users need for given situations. The corporate knowledge is retained, organized, shared and re-used to the benefit of individuals and of CNO as well as of their respective members.
