CALL FOR PAPERS
Knowledge Management / Organizational Memory Implementation and other Issues
Knowledge Management Systems Track
Hawai'i International Conference on System Sciences
January 4 - 7, 2006
Hyatt Regency, Kauai
Research into successful knowledge management and organizational learning implementation indicates that these initiatives necessitate a sound understanding of organizational culture and relationships, human social interactions, and communication. To create learning organization requires a cultural shift in both individuals and organizations. Before successful information systems can be implemented to support knowledge management and organizational learning in an organization, appropriate cultural foundations must be put in place. This may necessitate cultural change initiatives. This mini-track explores research into strategies and stories that relate to these cultural initiatives. In addition, the track will be used to explore the identifying of the bodies of knowledge that define the current state of research in knowledge management, organizational memory, and organizational learning.
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
• Considerations of the human-machine split in organizational memory and knowledge management processes
• 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
