Organizations are currently found in a situation, where the external environment is subject to fast changes. However, this means that they can survive only if they are able to continually adapt to these changes (even anticipate them). The way an enterprise prepares to be able to respond to the changes in the external environment, has essential significance. The aim is to create a system, in which staff at all levels of an organization would be involved in learning, and where learning includes both the acquisition of new knowledge and their use. The knowledge management should facilitate for all this. The aim of this paper is to introduce the research on sharing and dissemination of knowledge as a resource for decision-making in enterprises in the Czech Republic. The survey was carried out at the University of Hradec Kralove. In Total, 678 organizations operating in the Czech Republic across all sectors were contacted, with a focus on small and medium enterprises. 251 completed questionnaires were obtained. As revealed from the results of the survey, Czech enterprises perceive knowledge management as an important means for increasing competitiveness. For its systematic application in business practice, however, there are still some steps missing.
