The development of a system of industrial and organizational relations based on the use of digital technologies is an important task of modern enterprises. Management of organizational knowledge of the company is aimed at the creation and introduction of new products sold in the digital economy of the country. The article presents a scheme for the transformation of knowledge with the establishment of stages of the circuit from creating an idea to its commercialization in the market. The process of transforming organizational knowledge involves changing the type of knowledge along a chain from personal to codified and competence-based to materialized. The author’s scheme substantiates the key stages necessary for the most effective management of the turnover of organizational knowledge and the creation of innovations in the enterprise. The knowledge transformation scheme was the basis for the development of an organizational knowledge management algorithm. The presented knowledge management algorithm includes the creation, evaluation, adaptation, testing in practice of new/improved knowledge. The introduction of the HADI-cycle at the stage of testing a new/improved knowledge in the practice of the enterprise improves the efficiency of the preparation of the finished intellectual product. Evaluation of the effectiveness of innovative projects themselves as a result of the creation of new knowledge is not the aim of the study.
