Social Network Analysis for Knowledge Management
Led by Bruce Cronin, Director of the Centre for Business Network Analysis, University of Greenwich, London
Social networks are important constituents of knowledge sharing within organizations. Such networks are characteristically multi-level, with individual, institutional and task dimensions. The workshop will provide an introduction to the collection and analysis of social network data and how this can be utilised for knowledge management. Participants will learn to manipulate, analyse and interpret network data with examples drawn from organisational contexts.
10:30 - 12:30
IAKM Doctoral Workshop - DOING RESEARCH IN KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT
This workshop will be led by expert members of the International Association for Knowledge Management, and has the purpose to discuss the main challenges, approaches and methods for research in KM. Rather than a pure theoretical presentation of methods and approaches, presenters will propose their own view of the issue based on their practical and professional experience.
After a brief introduction, in which each presenter will illustrate specific methodological and implementation issues of KM research, the attending participants will be involved in an active/interactive exercise where, based on their experience or their specific research purposes, they will discuss specific features, pros and cons of the various approaches to KM research. Finally, with the help of workshop presenters, conclusions will be drawn and will be made available to participants through the web after the workshop.
15:00 - 17:00
Nations´ Wealth Creation and Poverty Reduction in the Knowledge Economy Context. Theoretical Foundations and Practical Implications
Led by José M. Viedma Martí, Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain
The advent of the Knowledge-based economy has dramatically changed the foundation of wealth creation for individuals, companies and nations. Assuming wealth is equivalent to abundance of valuable assets, in the new context of the 4th Industrial Revolution wealth is moving from tangible to intangible assets, and the main intangible asset is knowledge. Consequently, wealth is mainly accumulated knowledge.
