issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume14...
Abstract: Knowledge-based economy has recently gained an increasing attention in developed countries, however, understanding the main determinants of KBE development at a national level appeared to be neglected. Therefore, this paper tends to develop a conceptual model that addresses the main determinants of KBE development at a national level in which could accelerates the growth of national asset value and leads to national competitive position. Therefore, a systematic literature review was conducted to learn from advanced economies’ practices in KBE development and highlight KBE main pillars, drivers, and process of KBE function. The review reveals that :(A) development of human capital and maintaining the value of knowledge asset are the ultimate function(s) of KBE, (B) Learning, education, ICT and innovation are the main pillars of KBE, (C) knowledge management is the process underpinning KBE function, and (D) beliefs and intentions are the main endogenous drivers of...

Social Capital Management in Iranian Knowledge-Based Organizations

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume9-...
The importance of social capital and its effective management approach in organizations, particularly knowledge-based organizations, for assuring their ongoing and sustainable development and competitive advantage has been a matter of serious discussion in recent years. Considering the ongoing expansion and growth of knowledge-based organizations in Iran and the role and importance of their social capital in further development of Iranian society, an effective system of management of their social capital is a matter of concern of their top managers. Therefore, a blend (quantitative and qualitative) multiple case study was conducted with a selected number of knowledge-based organizations with different sizes to assess their existing social capital, to identify factors which might have positive or negative impacts on the promotion of their social capital and to propose an effective approach for its management. To conduct the study, a purposive sample of fifteen large organizations...

Intangible Assets: Importance in the Knowledge-Based Economy and the Role in Value Creation of a...

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume5-...
The paper is devoted to the question of how important Intangible Assets (IA) are in today's knowledge-based economy. The latest surveys show that the value of companies is now mostly generated by Intangible Assets, and not by "traditional" assets having a tangible form. The main research objective is to define the impact of fundamental value of both tangible and intangible assets on the market value of assets of Russian companies. As a general approach used herein for IA evaluation, the method of calculated intangible value offered by T. Stewart was chosen. Developed econometric models are tested on the data of Russian stock market from 2001 to 2005 year. In the focus of the research there is both the analysis of the sampled companies (43 companies) as a whole as well as divided into five aggregated fields: mechanical engineering, extractive industry, engineering, communication services, and metallurgy. Some suggestions for managing IA in Russian companies are presented in the...

Knowledge-Based Strategies for Knowledge Intensive Business Services: a Multiple Case-study of...

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume8-...
While knowledge is increasingly considered to be a key resource for companies, the models for formulating business strategies that explicitly include it as a core component are still lacking. The paper investigates such issues by considering the particular case of computer service companies, which can be seen as Knowledge Intensive Business Services (KIBS) firms connecting the sources of innovation (i.e. large multinationals, research laboratories, universities, etc.) to the individual needs of the local customers. In doing so they operate as mediators between the local cognitive requirements and the more generic knowledge available in the global environment. Since those companies base their competitiveness on the capability to manage knowledge flows among various actors, the formulation of their business strategies requires new approaches that directly focus on knowledge assets and relevant processes. The paper describes the results of a survey involving twenty-one computer...

Unitas: Towards a Holistic Understanding of Knowledge in Organisations A Case Based Analysis

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume13...
The aim of the paper is to present a holistic framework of knowledge in organizations. The language of duality and opposites dominates much of the knowledge based literature, whereby knowledge and knowing in organizations are framed as an either/ or dis cussion (Schultze and Stabell, 2004). This paper questions the usefulness of continued proliferation of such an approach, given the maturing nature of the field of knowledge management, and the ever increasing implementation of knowledge management acti vities by firms. The paper calls for a more unified interpretation of knowledge in organisations, which reflects the reality of the complex nature of knowledge and knowledge across the multiple levels of the firm. Hence the paper seeks to make a contribu tion by carrying out a multi case study of knowledge and knowing in organisations at multiple levels of analysis (that is at the individual, group and organizational level), with a view to supporting a unified framework on...

The Changing Role of Knowledge in Companies: How to Improve Business Performance Through...

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume9-...
Knowledge is widely accepted as strategic resource in companies, but its developmental potential is often not well exploited. Amongst others this is caused by the wide variety of knowledge management concepts, methods and tools challenging company management in selecting the appropriate measure for the specific company situation and developmental goal. Furthermore, knowledge is directly linked to people and knowledge-based interventions therefore cannot be successful without reaching the company’s employees and getting them involved in any change processes. Against this background the paper discusses the changing role of knowledge in companies and investigates how knowledge-based change processes in companies need to be launched and run. Based upon this a methodological framework is proposed in order to help companies in identifying their needs for change and purposefully intervening in their processes and eventually to lend them a hand in managing their human resources,...

Empirical Study on Knowledge Based Systems

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejise-volume8...
Knowledge-based systems (KBSs) implement the heuristic human reasoning through specific techniques, procedures and mechanisms, in order to solve problems that do not have a traditional algorithmic solution. Research on this topic is being done in numerous organisations all over the world, from higher education laboratories to research institutes and software development organisations. A first research project, aimed at gathering information about the State-of-the-Practice in building knowledge- based systems with practical applications, needed a preliminary study to ascertain if KBSs still exist today as a research topic, or the interest in them actually faded. The study was also required for finding organisations currently building KBSs for different domains. The project's aim was to catalogue the software andor knowledge engineering methods employed by the listed organisations, in order to draw a comprehensive image (State-of-the- Practice) of the field. The current paper...

A Theoretical Model to Integrate PKM with Kolb s Learning Model for Mitigating Risks From...

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume14...
Abstract: Recent studies on use of Internet among youngsters suggest problematic behaviour and adverse impacts on overall health as there are uncharted boundaries of information and media through Internet. Such related problems include Internet addiction, shyness, alienation, psychological distress and academic performance decrement over time. As a consequence, the ability of students in tertiary education to communicate effectively and interact humanly could deteriorate as they become more accustomed to networking via Internet. However, students nowadays do increasingly rely on the Internet to perform research under the knowledge-based economy despite concerns over reliability and truthfulness of information available from Internet. Against such a background, we construct a framework for an optimal use of Internet with the main purpose of Personal Knowledge Management (PKM). We argue for an interventionist approach to orient students in tertiary education to develop a strategic...
