Minitracks 


 
 

 

Ethical issues of KM

The Minitrack is concerned with an examination of this darker side of knowledge management.  Papers are solicited which look at the ethical issues of raised by the practices of knowledge management, applications of KM in fields such as information warfare, and papers which  provide a broader, more historically informed, definition of knowledge and knowledge management than those coming from much of the KM literature.

Knowledge Flows: Knowledge Transfer, Sharing and Exchange in Organizations

Knowledge flows occur between individuals, among groups of individuals, and between organizations. This minitrack focuses on examining the nature and role of knowledge flows (e.g., knowledge transfer and knowledge sharing) among entities.

 

Potential topics that this session will address are:

  • Characterizing the nature of knowledge flows.
  • Design of information and communication systems that facilitate knowledge transfer and sharing.
  • Technical challenges and solutions in the development and implementation of systems that facilitate knowledge flows.
  • Managerial and organizational challenges and solutions in institutionalization and implementation of processes and activities that facilitate knowledge flows.
  • Intra- and inter-organizational processes for effective leverage of knowledge through knowledge transfer and sharing.
  • Enablers and inhibitors of knowledge sharing and knowledge transfer behaviors.
  • Effects of national, professional, and organizational cultures on knowledge transfer and knowledge sharing.
  • Knowledge transfer and sharing behaviours within emergent organizational forms such as virtual communities.
  • Role of information and communication technologies in managing knowledge flows.
  • Knowledge reuse in organizations.
  • Organizational and economic incentive structures for knowledge sharing and use.
  • Knowledge acquisition and transfer processes
  • Knowledge transfer enablers
  • Organizational culture affects on knowledge transfer

Knowledge Management / Organizational Memory Implementation and other Issues

During the past twelve years, HICSS has evolved into a key international forum for knowledge management, organizational learning and organizational memory researchers and practitioners. This minitrack continues this trend by encouraging paper submissions from researchers and practitioners exploring implementation aspects of KM/OM systems.  These include case studies, measuring the effectiveness and/or success of implemented systems, critical issues, strategy concerns, and lessons learned.

 

Possible Paper Topics:

·        Case studies of knowledge management and organizational memory systems

·        Effectiveness of knowledge management/organizational memory systems

·        Other issues affecting the design, construction, implementation, and use of knowledge management/organizational memory systems

·        Knowledge management/organizational memory systems for small and medium enterprises

·        Methodologies and processes for developing Knowledge Management and/or Organizational Memory Systems

·        Global issues in knowledge management, organizational memory, and organizational learning

·        Knowledge management strategy

·        Organizational effectiveness due to knowledge management/organizational memory/ organizational learning and knowledge and organizational memory use

·        Knowledge management, organizational memory, and organizational learning metrics

Knowledge Mobilization and Enterprise Coordination Capability

In his keynote address at HICSS 38, Peter G.W. Keen challenged researchers to move beyond historical interpretations of knowledge management to address ‘knowledge mobilization.’   The purpose of this minitrack is to assess this vision, investigate its tenets, evaluate relevant technical approaches to architecture, infrastructure, meta-modeling and mobile computing, and to postulate theoretical bases for addressing the knowledge paradox and the concomitant need for enterprise coordination capability. 

 

Possible topics include:

  • Theories addressing knowledge mobilization      and the ‘knowledge paradox’
  • Categorizations of organizational knowledge with implications to knowledge mobilization strategies
  • Applications of mobile computing technologies to knowledge mobilization
  • Enterprise coordination capability assessment
  • Enterprise model management and coordination capability
  • Architectural solutions for ‘demand-centered’ knowledge mobilization
  • Interface standardization assessment
  • Meta-modeling, semantic web and knowledge mobilization

Knowledge Networks and Distributed Knowledge Systems

Organizations are faced with developing communication strategies that maintain centralized and fully accessible knowledge bases while at the same time trying to compete in a highly decentralized market place. Numerous networked devices serve the purpose of connecting human knowledge capital. This minitrack will identify and examine mechanisms for knowledge workers to access knowledge capital inherent in knowledge networks by examining the practices of knowledge workers and the networks in which they work.

 

Possible paper topics include:

  • Network Structure for the Diffusion of Knowledge
  • Bayesian networks
  • Adaptive Learning  networks
  • Framework Knowledge Networks and Knowledge Network Architectures
  • Exploring the impacts of the use of knowledge and organizational memory on the effectiveness of organizations or processes
  • Global issues for the design, construction, implementation, and use of knowledge networks and distributed knowledge systems
  • Integrating organizational knowledge within the organization and across the organization’s value chain
  • Developing processes and systems for transferring, storing, integrating, and managing knowledge
  • Methodologies, tools, processes, technologies for developing knowledge networks and distributed knowledge systems
  • Developing processes and systems for facilitating organizational learning
  • Describing case studies of knowledge networks and distributed knowledge systems

Philosophical Foundations of KM research

This minitrack is founded on the belief that we have hardly begun to tap the potential of philosophy and epistemology in our work, especially in developing a more robust foundation for what we do. The objective is to explore how philosophy has been used as a reference discipline to knowledge management research, and to foster the development of a "philosophy of knowledge management technology.  Understanding and managing the ethical implications of KM-related technology seems to be a vital issue, and accordingly, it seems appropriate that we turn to philosophy as away of understanding these issues in the context of knowledge management systems.

 

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • Ethical, Epistemological and Ethnographic issues in KM
  • Philosophy of KM “science”
  • KM and philosophy and research methodologies
  • Roles that philosophy might play in relation to KM issues
  • A philosophy of KM Technology
  • Phenomenology and KM Technology
  • General Systems Theory applied to KM issues
  • Churchman's Inquiring Systems and KM issues
  • KM Technology and its impact on society
  • Philosophy as Practical KM Research
  • Philosophical case studies
  • Philosophy and the Internet; Philosophy and Knowledge Management
