Knowledge networks are being used increasingly within organisations. However, the present paradigm emphasises mainly on improving the availability of knowledge, or the potential knowledge to the individuals, and gives little concern to how knowledge is realised from the networks. In this paper we argue that the individuals approach to the acquisition of knowledge has variable states determined by a number of factors, some are beyond the control of the individual. Based on this we present a theory for the effectiveness of a knowledge network in terms of both its potentiality and its appeal to the individuals as a useful source of knowledge.
