    Abstract: Suggests another dimension of research in, and application of, knowledge management. This theoretical paper adopts a conceptual, multi-disciplinary approach. First, knowledge can be stored and transmitted via institutions. Second, knowledge "subnetworks" or smaller groupings within larger networks can become key repositories of knowledge. The concept of knowledge "subnetworks" needs to be tested against emperical evidence, which should include a cross-national comparison of knowledge-based cities. The paper provides some insights to policy makers in designing or developing global cities. It is one of the few papers that discusses the connection between knowledge management and growth of global cities.Keywords: Information exchange, Organizations, Knowledge management
