Characterising the Knowledge Approach of a Firm: An Investigation of Knowledge Activities in...

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume10...
An organisation’s ability to successfully compete in a changing market place is contingent on its ability to manage what it knows, in order to serve the objectives of the firm. While it has been argued that due to their size, knowledge management (KM) is not a concern for smaller organisations, in the current economic climate, it is expected that a more formalised approach to KM allows the company to seize opportunities as they arise, and deal with environmental uncertainty more effectively. In view of this, the objective of this study was to devise a classification of knowledge activities (KAs) which facilitates the exploration of a Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in terms of the type and extent to which knowledge is managed. Furthermore, analysis of KAs provided a greater understanding of the fit between the firm’s objectives and the KM approach pursued. In order to achieve this, five case studies were conducted. Based on the classification of KAs identified, a...

Understanding Knowledge Management and Learning Essentials

issuu.com/celcius233/docs/knowledge-management-and-le...
People gain knowledge if they learn from experience. Learning is thus a vital component of knowledge management and its ultimate end. Collective learning comes from participating in the social processes of collaboration, sharing knowledge, and building on one another’s ideas. This Knowledge Primer lays emphasis on core knowledge activities; recommends a knowledge management architecture; distinguishes single-, double-, and triple-loop learning; particularizes motivations behind knowledge management efforts; and flags cultural roadblocks to knowledge management success.

Harvesting Knowledge

issuu.com/celcius233/docs/harvesting-knowledge...
If 80% of knowledge is unwritten and largely unspoken, we first need to elicit that before we can articulate, share, and make wider use of it. Knowledge harvesting is one way to draw out and package tacit knowledge to help others adapt, personalize, and apply it; build organizational capacity; and preserve institutional memory.

Knowledge Management for Knowledge Workers

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume9-...
Knowledge workers represent more than half of all employees in advanced economies. In general knowledge workers are people who, when working, use their brain more than their muscles. Agricultural and industrial worlds depended on the work of manual workers and the life standard of their inhabitants and the success of agricultural and industrial organizations grew due to the increase of manual worker productivity. Existing knowledge economy depends on the work of knowledge workers and the labour productivity they can achieve. Knowledge is a major resource and tool that knowledge workers use to create values. Therefore, the way work with knowledge is organized in an organization influences the productivity of knowledge workers. This article discusses the results of research on knowledge management in organizations in the Czech Republic. This research started at the University of Economics, Prague in 2004 and continues today.

A Critical Analysis of Nonaka's Model of Knowledge Dynamics

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume8-...
The purpose of this paper is to present a critical analysis of the well known knowledge dynamics model elaborated by Ikujiro Nonaka and his co-workers. The essence of this model consists of three layers of the knowledge-creation process: (a) the process of knowledge creation through socialization-externalization-combination-internalization (SECI), the knowledge conversion process between tacit and explicit knowledge; (b) Ba —the platform for knowledge creation; (c) knowledge assets. The success and popularity of this model created premises and temptations for using it beyond the conceptual limits initially defined, generating this way a superficial interpretation of the complex organizational knowledge dynamics. Our critical analysis aims at the investigation of the operational power of Nonaka's model of knowledge dynamics within the framework of organizational knowledge. In the same time, we would like to apply the entropy law to SECI model and to see how the conversion...

Methods and Tools for Knowledge Management in Research Centres

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume8-...
In the Knowledge Based Economy, research centres whether industrial or public, play a fundamental role. In terms of Knowledge Management, these organisations have a special status, because their production is knowledge and only knowledge. The Knowledge Capital they accumulate in their activities therefore is a strong strategic issue and the management of these assets has become crucial. The problem addressed in this paper is to design a pertinent methodology for Knowledge Management considering the specificity of knowledge production by research centres. This methodology is based on a suitable model to describe that knowledge production. The reference model is built on knowledge flows between the organisation and its knowledge workers, and a subsystem called “Knowledge Capital”. A research centre is defined by the fact that its product is only knowledge and is accumulated in its knowledge subsystem. Some economical characteristics of this Knowledge Capital are shown as being...

Tacit Knowledge, its Codification and Technological Advancement

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume11...
Abstract: The paper addresses issues related to the confusion surrounding conceptual understanding of tacit knowledge and its transferability in organization's realm from an original perspective. Lately, at every level: country, industry and organization, attention to knowledge has intensified due to the realization that in "post-capitalist society" (Drucker, 1993) knowledge is increasingly replacing traditional driving forces of economy: labor, capital and natural resources as the primary factor in economic growth. Knowledge use is now considered as imperative in all aspects of an organization. In literature there exist various typologies of knowledge, however, in organizational science most common classifications of knowledge include two general types: tacit and explicit. This paper brings clarity to the concept of tacit knowledge, nexus between tacit and explicit knowledge and effects of advances in technologies on the codification capability of tacit knowledge. It argues that...
