Networks of Communities and Communities of Networks in Online Government
Abstract: Over the past decade the World Wide Web has become a core platform for the electronic operation of government. Yet the shape and nature of government presence on the Web and the online community in which it resides remains poorly understood and relatively under-theorised. This paper analyses large-scale web crawling data that map the hyperlink network structure between government websites and the broader Web ecology in the UK. In particular, it reports the communities of websites within a hype rlink network of over 19,000 websites and over 135,000 hyperlinks derived from 75 key UK government seed sites at national, regional (i.e. Scotland and Wales) and local government levels. These website communities were derived by utilising Infomap, a st ate-of-the-art community detection algorithm that operate on the principle that flows of information in complex networks reveals community structure. Identifying and analysing online communities in which government websites...

Knowledge Management in a Virtual Community of Practice using Discourse Analysis
The topic of Community-of-Practice (CoP) has been discussed in the management literature in the earlier part of 1990's, and since attracted a lot of attention from academics and professionals around the globe. Communities of Practice (CoP) have become a strategic approach for fostering learning and transferring knowledge. However, there are a few studies, which explain what makes a community to engage in a discussion to share their knowledge and experience. This paper discusses the anatomy of a CoP, and examines a number of knowledge management tools such as story telling and discourse analysis to illustrate how knowledge is transferred and learning takes place in a virtual Community of Practice. Results are presented from a 'live' virtual community of practice, which is in the maturity period of its life cycle to discuss the role of domain experts and moderators how they facilitate to engage the community in dialogues and help generate the new knowledge. Also using Nonaka and...

Knowledge use and Sharing into a Medical Community of Practice; the Role of Virtual Agents...
Knowledge-oriented organizations are bricks for the knowledge-based society construction. Building knowledge-based society and economy suppose challenging transition processes from the classical structure of an organization to new organizational forms that help to fill the gap between actual society and the future knowledge-based society and economy. This transition generates new issues in knowledge creation and sharing processes, related to the particularities of the new organizational forms. Therefore, in the last few years, our researches are oriented to developing and testing a number of forms of organization designed to facilitate an efficient and effective transition toward the knowledge-based society, like communities of practice, (virtual) networks of professionals or knowledge ecosystems (KE). Under this general frame, this paper presents the results of our research aiming to capture the necessary changes that a medical organization specialized in rehabilitation (the...

Knowledge Sharing in a Community of Practice: a Text-Based Approach in Emergent Domains
The shared use of specialist terminology amongst the members of a community of practice is explored as evidence for the existence of the concept of terminology is described — this method uses both univariate analysis, specifically frequency distribution of single and compound words, and multivariate statistical analysis, particularly factor analysis. The results show that terminology sharing may act as a metric for knowledge sharing and knowledge diffusion among different (sub-) communities. The case study chosen to demonstrate the efficacy of the terminology-sharing method is drawn from breast cancer care, where texts produced for and by the three main components of the community are examined — namely the experts, the professionals and the patients. The shared use of specialist terminology amongst the members of a community of practice is explored as evidence for the existence of the concept of communal lexicon. A computer-based method of investigating the extent of...

Guidelines for Knowledge Partnerships
ADB's long-term strategic framework, Strategy 2020, argues that knowledge solutions must be enriched through internal learning from operational practice and external learning from long-term knowledge partnerships. The Guidelines for Knowledge Partnerships offer a framework for strengthening such partnerships. They specify the essentials of designing for performance, articulate building blocks, and underscore success factors and special considerations. The guidelines are offered as a resource document and reference to ADB staff members in general. They may also help other organizations design and manage their knowledge partnerships better.

Managing Knowledge in Project Environments
Projects ought to be vehicles for both practical benefits and organizational learning. However, if an organization is designed for the long term, a project exists only for its duration. Project-based organizations face an awkward dilemma: the project-centric nature of their work makes knowledge management, hence learning, difficult.

Restoring the Gulf of Mexico: A Framework for Ecosystem Restoration in the Gulf of Mexico
The BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster severely impacted portions of the ecosystem along with the region’s economies and communities. That damage, however, occurred against a backdrop of decades-long challenges ranging from the loss and degradation of wetlands and barrier islands along the coast to formation of “dead zones” in the northern Gulf to overfishing and lost fisheries productivity. The BP oil disaster triggered a national call to action to go beyond the impacts of the blowout and address the long-term degradation the region has suffered. As the nation carries out its commitment to restore the Gulf ecosystem to a healthy condition, restoration must address both short- and long-term damage in three key areas: coastal environments, blue-water resources and coastal communities.
