Developing successful Knowledge Management (KM) processes is extremely difficult. In general, a large number of all KM projects end unsuccessfully. This paper is to summarize and study the attempts to take advantage of lessons learned in the Swedish Armed Forces (SwAF), focusing on international missions. Relevant reports and literature have been studied. With the purpose of understanding the reasons for failure and the failure factors in SwAF's attempts at KM, Chua and Lam's model for unsuccessful KM implementation has been applied to four cases from the organization.
