We demonstrate the need for reuse in today's software development organisations in the light of widely accepted literature. Based on this need, we introduce the reuse processes and identify the knowledge dependent processes involved. We provide an introduction to the KM process model developed at VTT and describe the process of continuous improvement integrated to it. We establish a link between reuse and KM and then develop a theory of KM process improvement. Finally we give an outlook on a coming customer project in which we are going to evaluate this theory in an industrial case.
