This paper provides a review of value creation literature by adapting and extending KM generations models (Koenig 2002; Vorakulpipat and Rezgui 2006). An interpretive stance is adopted so as to provide a holistic understanding and interpretation of organizational KM research and related Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) and models. It is suggested that once organizations promote knowledge sharing (past generation KM) and knowledge creation (present generation KM), it is necessary to create sustained organizational and societal values. Value creation forms the next generation KM and represents key challenges faced by modern organizations. The research shows that value creation is grounded in the appropriate combination of human networks, social capital, intellectual capital, technology assets, and change processes.
