Knowledge development in an enterprise is about approaches, methods, techniques and tools that will support the advancement of individual and organizational knowledge for the purpose of an improvement of businesses. A modeling basis for knowledge development is provided with a new conception of knowledge and of knowledge conversions, which introduces three dimensions of knowledge and general conversions between knowledge assets. This modeling basis guides the definition of a taxonomy of knowledge development scenarios. In this taxonomy, constructive and analytic scenarios are distinguished as main categories and subsequently refined into more specific ones. In order to indicate the usefulness of this taxonomy, example implementations of two knowledge development scenarios are briefly outlined: a modeling notation for knowledgeintensive business processes as a constructive scenario and a rule-processing system based on a knowledge ontology as an analytic scenario.
