One of the requirements of knowledge utilization in organizations is to use IT tools and create a knowledge base. In this way, all the displayed and hidden experience of the human resource of the organization can be stored and coded to make easy access throughout the organization. Managing organizational documents, creating expert associations and forming think tanks to generate and nurture ideas are some of the issues that will be achieved with the development of a comprehensive knowledge management system. Therefore, it is necessary to review investments such as purchasing management consulting services in the field of designing audience communication management strategy and business processes re-engineering, purchasing or developing and implementing IT communication tools for audience communication and staff training to manage audience communication.
