Title: Mapping Knowledge and Intellectual Capital in Academic Environments
A Focus Group Study
Author: Hellström, Tomas; Husted, Kenneth
Abstract: This paper argues that knowledge mapping may provide a fruitful avenue for intellectual capital management in academic environments such as university departments. However, while some research has been conducted on knowledge mapping and intellectual capital management in the public sector, the university has so far not been directly considered for this type of management. The paper initially reviews the functions and techniques of knowledge mapping and assesses these in the light of academic demands. Secondly, the result of a focus group study is presented, where academic leaders were asked to reflect of the uses of knowledge mapping at their departments and institutes. Finally a number of suggestions are made as to the rationale and conduct of knowledge mapping in academe. Keywords: Knowledge mapping, academic, intellectual capital management, focus group, research management
