EN The aim of this paper is to present the role of knowledge management in the process of professional development of the Ministry of National Defence personnel with regard to contemporary socioeconomic changes. The basic research problem concerns the use of the knowledge management concept in the management of the process of professional development of the Ministry of National Defence employees. The structure of the article covers two basic exploratory issues. The first one refers to general theoretical tenets of knowledge management in modern armed forces. The second one concerns the functioning of armed forces in a knowledge economy. Aside from theory, the paper also looks at the practical aspects of knowledge management in armed forces. Results from the analysis of the literature and of non-standardised indirect observation were used during the research process. Face-to-face, free-form interviews with selected knowledge management specialists were also employed.
