Title: Governing Knowledge Processes
Theoretical Foundations and Research Opportunities
Author: Foss, Nicolai; Husted, Kenneth; Michailova, Snejina; Pedersen, Torben
Abstract: An under-researched issue in work within the "knowledge movement" is the relation between organizational issues and knowledge processes (i.e., sharing and creating knowledge). We argue that managers can shape formal organization structure and organization forms and can influence the more informal organizational practices in order to foster knowledge sharing and creation. Theoretically, we unfold this argument by relying on key ideas of organizational economics and organizational behaviour studies. We put forward a number of refutable propositions derived from this reasoning. Acknowledgments We are grateful to Anna Grandori for numerous excellent comments on an earlier draft. The standard disclaimer applies. Keywords: Knowledge creation, knowledge sharing, governance, organizational economics, organizational behavior.
