Conteúdo do artigo principal

Jamie O'Brien


This research offers a knowledge-positioning framework that allows for incorporation and recognition of the many forms of knowledge at work in organizations. Early frameworks aimed at representing and unifying organizational knowledge, are used as a basis for a more connected knowledge framework. From an academic perspective the research builds on established theoretical work in the area of organizational knowledge, which calls for a more integrated and all-encompassing view to be taken of both organizational knowledge and organizational knowing. Case material on the knowledge management activity at two medical device organizations (referred to as Case A and Case B hereafter) is used to illustrate various points within the conceptual design.
