    This working document presents a Knowledge Management (KM) fictitious scenario to be modeled using Intentional Analysis in order to guide us on choosing the appropriate Information System support for the given situation. In this scenario, a newcomer in a knowledge organization decides to join an existing Community of Practice (CoP) in order to share knowledge and adjust to his new working environment. The preliminary idea suggests that Tropos is used for the Intentional Analysis, allowing us to elicit the requirements for a KM system, followed by the use of Agent-Object-Relationship Modeling Language (AORML) on the architectural and detailed design phases of software development. Aside of this primary goal, we also intend to point out needs of extending the expressiveness of the current Intentional analysis modeling language we are using and to check where the methodology could be improved in order to make it more usable. This is the first version of this working document, which we aim to constantly update with our new findings resulting of progress in the analysis.
