Thematic Issue – Estrategias Review

*  *  *

Published on Wednesday, December 09, 2015 by Elsa Zotian

Summary

In about fifteen years, knowledge management has progressively become an integral part of research which leads today to the existence of about twenty internationally referenced journals. Knowledge is now considered as a new source of wealth and a "new" asset within firms and organizations. Its management gives rise to numerous problems because of its features: knowledge is difficult to control (involuntary spreading, or on the contrary access and sharing failure). It is an unlimited resource (it cannot be destroyed after use). It accrues in the organization. Hence, what are today this asset management issues, how to manage and protect knowledge at best, how to evaluate this intangible asset, how to value knowledge within organizations?

Argument

In about fifteen years, knowledge management has progressively become an integral part of research which leads today to the existence of about twenty internationally referenced journals.

Knowledge is now considered as a new source of wealth and a « new » asset within firms and organizations. Its management gives rise to numerous problems because of its features: knowledge is difficult to control (involuntary spreading, or on the contrary access and sharing failure). It is an unlimited resource (it cannot be destroyed after use). It accrues in the organization. Hence, what are today this asset management issues, how to manage and protect knowledge at best, how to evaluate this intangible asset, how to value knowledge within organizations? Who does it belong to? If the issue linked to intellectual property within industrial firms has been stressed, we are still awaiting a real encounter between knowledge dynamics and development of commons. Knowledge-based innovation has been largely covered by battles around industrial property, but convincing experiences around no-charge free softwares, open platforms and creative commons licenses are in favor of an increased interest for commons.

In a more managerial perspective, knowledge management (KM) is a rapidly expanding issue in the business world, as their objectives aim at creation, codification, capitalization, knowledge transfer within organizations along with strategy in the framework of an intensive innovation scheme, and with the aim of improving the organizational performance. Once again, many challenges are still to be faced: what linkage between business strategy and knowledge management.
