Abstract
Knowledge management and the accumulation of knowledge assets can enhance an enterprise's competitiveness. However, knowledge is intangible and immeasurable, and effective knsawledge management is challenging. The interior decoration industry is characterized by project implementation and discontinuous management and therefore cannot easily manage knowledge assets. Therefore, we propose communities of practice as a model to help introduce the construction industry into the field of knowledge management. We explain how this can help interior decoration firms improve knowledge management, collect tangible and intangible knowledge, accumulate intangible assets, achieve sustainable development, and enhance competitiveness. Moreover, we adopted the Delphi method and analytical hierarchy process to explore factors that would influence the success of communities of practice in the interior decoration industry
