This article presents the state of the art of methodologies based on knowledge management applied to business intelligence implementation projects, exposing the risks of failure in software development projects where the early stages of the development cycle, requirements gathering and design have greater impact. The research carries out an analysis of the documentation associated with aspects that reduce the impact of risk factors such as knowledge transfer and benefits management at the organizational level, contextualized in the development of software implementation projects where communication between the parties and their collaborative participation plays an important role, still these approaches doesn’t considers the differential factors associated with business intelligence implementation projects and their implementation teams, deducting that the proposal of a new methodology is necessary.
