Creating a knowledge management system (KMS) is a popular goal in corporate strategies. Medium, large and multinational companies know and use the expression ‘knowledge management’ (KM) almost without exception, but what they mean by it is varied. In this study, our intention was to shed light on how large and multinational companies use a KMS in their everyday practice, if at all. Our aim was to present an overview of the practical application of KM systems in Hungarian companies to show the best methods which yield favourable results and to gather the most troublesome obstacles arising in the course of building a KMS. Fourty-three companies were invited to participate in our research. The interview – based investigation followed the logic of the well-known Probst model. The findings of this survey offer important assistance in building a KMS, repairing an existing system or applying new methods and tools. This paper summarizes the results of our research.
