The Past-Present-Future Conundrum: Extending Time-Bound Knowledge

Ali Intezari (University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia), David J.
Pauleen (Massey University, Auckand, New Zealand)

This paper extends the Knowledge Management-discipline's understanding of
knowledge. By including the concept of time, this extended
conceptualization of knowledge could make knowledge management and decision
making more responsive to the complexity found in organizational and social
environments. The authors suggest that knowledge tends to be past-oriented
in terms of its formative components, while emergent situations are
future-oriented, which may or may not have roots in the past. In this
article, the authors explore this past-present-future conundrum by
explaining how reliance on the past may restrict an organization's ability
to deal with emergent situations in the future. The role of wisdom will be
introduced as a bridge connecting current past-oriented knowledge to
unknown and unpredictable future-oriented events. The paper concludes that
handling complex business decisions requires wisdom and that knowledge
management and information systems must be designed and developed to
support decisions by providing an integrative framework of analytics and

Moderator Effects of Proactive Knowledge Transfer Among Knowledge Transfer
Usefulness, Management, and Innovation: A Study of Knowledge Innovation
Effective Model Construction

Hsiao-Ming Chen (National Taiwan Normal University, Taipei, Taiwan), Yu-Hsi
Yuan (Yuanpei University of Medical Technology, Hsinchu, Taiwan), Chia-Huei
Wu (Institute of Service Industries and Management, Minghsin University of
Science Technology, Hsinchu, Taiwan), Chien-Yun Dai (National Taiwan Normal
University, Taipei, Taiwan)

The purpose of this study was trying to explore the influence and
relationship between knowledge transfer usefulness, management, initiative,
and innovation. The instrument was constructed through literature review
and related research scales. Total 26 items were retrieved from related
study and modified dependent on exports' recommendations. Total 1,012 valid
data were collected based on judgment sampling. The Cronbach's a of
instrument was ranged from .878 to .948. The construction validity test was
passed. The analysis result shows that knowledge management play strong
partial mediator role between knowledge transfer usefulness and knowledge
innovation, meanwhile, knowledge transfer usefulness was also the important
predictor to knowledge innovation. Hence, the proactive knowledge transfer
has moderation effects between knowledge management and knowledge
innovation. The research model was established and some conclusions and
suggestions were discussed base on the research findings.

Knowledge Sharing between Enterprises of the Same Group

Nuno Carvalho (Faculdade de Economia da Universidade de Coimbra, Coimbra,
Portugal), Isabel Gomes (ISCTE, Coimbra, Portugal)

This exploratory study seeks to promote investigation about knowledge
sharing between enterprises of the same enterprise group and is motivated
by the growing importance of knowledge management (KM) to businesses. The
data was collected from Community Innovation Survey (CIS) 2012 and three
linear regressions were performed (one to all enterprises, one to SME and
one to large enterprises). The results show that cooperation for product or
process innovation and service innovation influence knowledge sharing
between enterprises of the same enterprise group, contributing to learning
organizations. The present paper clarifies the importance of innovation and
cooperation for innovation in KM practices between enterprises of the same
enterprise group. The results are only valid to SME, since large
enterprises have different practices of KM.

Understanding Knowledge Sharing in an Organization: A Perspective of
Actor-Network Theory

Michael Twum-Darko (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Cape Town,
South Africa), Lee-Anne Lesley Harker (Cape Peninsula University of
Technology, Cape Town, South Africa)

This paper set out to propose the actor-network theory (ANT) as a lens
through which to understand and interpret the sociotechnical knowledge
sharing challenges in organisations. The methodology for this study was
developed within the context of ANT by adopting its ideals and principles.
The findings demonstrate that using the concept of the Moments of
Translation as a lens to study this phenomenon is indeed a novel way of
investigating the reason why there is still difficulty with sharing and
managing knowledge. This perspective is proposed to transform the way that
knowledge sharing factors are perceived. By utilising a normative approach,
this research looked at how knowledge sharing as an ideal can be achieved
when taking into account the existing constraints within an organisation. A
general framework is proposed to guide the formation of a network of
aligned interest for knowledge sharing.

journal is also included in the IGI Global aggregated *"InfoSci-Journals"*
 database: www.igi-global.com/isj


Mission of IJKM:

The primary objective of the *International Journal of Knowledge Management
(IJKM)* is to provide a comprehensive cross discipline forum for advancing
the understanding of the organizational, technical, human, and cognitive
issues associated with the creation, capture, transfer and use of knowledge
in organizations. The secondary objective of this Journal is to share
knowledge among researchers and practitioners with respect to the design,
development, implementation and maintenance of effective knowledge
management systems. The journal publishes high quality empirical and
theoretical research covering all aspects of knowledge management. In
addition to full-length research manuscripts, the journal publishes
insightful research and practice notes as well as case studies from all
areas of knowledge management.
