Conceptualizing Organisational Knowledge from a Typological Perspective: Establishing Linkages to Organisational Performance

Abstract :

Although organisational knowledge has been argued to be a vital means to enhancing organisational competitiveness yet most discussions in existing literature has been limited by a technology based perspective of organisational knowledge. Consequently, human cognitive capabilities have been largely expunged in relating organisational knowledge to performance. Based on a conceptualization of organisational knowledge from a perspective that combine people and technology, this research proposes four dimensions of organisational knowledge that can be linked to performance.
