For a successful learning organization, it is of crucial importance to have successful methods for stimulation and sharing of working and learning activities of their employees. However, there are two important challenges to be addressed: i) combination of individual and organizational incentives that motivate employees to take part in knowledge building and sharing activities; and ii) structuring of learning and knowledge building activities and their outcomes in a representation that can assure unambiguous knowledge sharing. To address these challenges, we propose a framework of individual and organizational factors for knowledge sharing and a set of ontologies that provides a systematic and interlinked representation of concepts of individual and organizational learning. On top of these proposals, we developed and here present a software solution, which has been evaluated through a case study conducted in a large enterprise context.
