Managing Knowledge
Perspectives on Cooperation and Competition

Edited by:

October 1996 | 248 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
As we move from the industrial age to the information age, the key to the competitive success of organizations becomes the application and development of specialized knowledge and competencies. Based on research and practice, Managing Knowledge addresses a wide area of issues concerning knowledge management, ranging from knowledge transfer and developments between organizations, to knowledge management within organizations. Divided into two parts, this volume reflects a fundamental conceptual distinction between two worldviews. The first part contains chapters characterized by "representationism," or traditional approaches to viewing knowledge transfer and cooperative strategies; the second part comprises chapters characterized by "antirepresentationism," or new perspectives on knowledge and knowledge transfer in organizational cooperation. Contrasting established approaches with new thinking on knowledge as an organizational resource, Managing Knowledge will be important and stimulating reading for academics and students in strategic management and general management studies.

Afterword
An Agenda for Practice and Future Research  

`The work is a scholarly treatise and all contributors have displayed remarkable prowess in conceptualisation. Yet, every theme has been examined so that the practising manager may be provided with guidelines.... With commedable methodological rigour, the authors have drawn extensively from meticulously researched work in the fields of sociology of knowledge and strategic management and then formulated their own integrative model. Their work is characterised by both depth and breadth.... important and intellectually challenging' - Management Review (India)
