The challenges facing today's managers are many and varied but largely consist of coping with an increasingly changeable and turbulent business environment at both the macro and micro levels. Suggested solutions to these challenges are also varied but often relate to developing strategies around the concepts of knowledge management, organisational learning, and innovation. The paper briefly examines these vital concepts and the links between them and proposes that they can be usefully integrated into one systemic meta-process (The KMOLI Spiral). It is suggested that this integrated meta-process is at the very heart of an organisation's core functions and capabilities. The paper also explores links between a range of current information technologies and their impact on various stages of the integrated meta-process.
