Issues and Challenges: 
This indicator requires users to define the group of interest here —an entire organization, a department or other functional team, a community of practice, or Facebook group. Users will also need to define “knowledge” and "use of knowledge" in their particular context as well as an appropriate time period, usually monthly or quarterly, for knowledge-sharing activities.
