In the context of Danish and Norwegian armed forces the principle of learning by investigating and examining earlier experiences and reviewing what kind of knowledge can be extracted from the performance of the individuals and groups is a commonly performed activity. In general the armed forces are talking about Lessons Identified and Lessons Learned. These evaluations are generally executed through knowledge sharing systems. In Norway the system used is FERDABALL and in Denmark DLIMS. This thesis will negotiate different possibilities to enhance the organizational value of the experiences achieved by the individual soldier.

By means of interviews in Denmark and focus group interview in Norway we have qualified the findings from the analysis. The findings indicate that proposals to enhance the organizational value of the experiences achieved by the individual soldier should follow 3 lines of considerations.

For the gathering of data and information we present a conceptual model for an APP designed to expand the possibilities of the individual soldier to contribute by means of text, pictures, audio and video.

For the knowledge management system on the premise of using a database including ana-lyzing and storing of data, information and knowledge, we propose an approach in line with the ideas of a Wiki.

And finally for the distribution of the content of the knowledge management system we pro-pose a Google inspired search engine to allow the individual soldier easier access to the explicit knowledge stored in FERDABALL and DLIMS.
