Knowledge management is a very important way of creating competitive dynamics in the market. This paper proposes a structural adoption model, in which "Ba", defined here, as the existence of a knowledge-sharing environment, is determinant in the adoption of organizational knowledge management systems (KMS). This model was validated through a survey within a real organizational context of a telecommunications company. Results showed that Ba, through the tacit organizational tasks, is a significant factor in the perception of the ease of use and therefore a determinant factor in the adoption of KMS.
