KNOWLEDGE VALUE, SUCCESS, AND MEASUREMENTS MINITRACK



KNOWLEDGE, INNOVATION, AND ENTREPRENEURIAL SYSTEMS TRACK



8-11 January, 2019



Grand Wailea Maui http://hicss.hawaii.edu

Research into knowledge systems, knowledge management (KM), organizational
memories, and organizational learning has been affected by investigations
such as implementation aspects, system developments, or knowledge flows
during a number of years. Therefore, a high maturity level of KM research
has been achieved. However, organizational knowledge/KM initiatives are
more and more faced with budget cuts and justification demands due to
intense competition in today’s business environments. The influences of the
rapid pace of globalization and of the ongoing liberalization of national
and international markets lead to the emergence of increased pressure on
existing companies. Project managers of knowledge/KM initiatives like Chief
Knowledge Officers need to justify their budgets and, thus, are in need of
qualitative and quantitative evidence of the initiatives’ success. In
addition, ROI calculations and traditional accounting approaches do not
tell an adequate story when proposing knowledge-based initiatives.

This minitrack explores research into strategies, methodologies, and
stories that relate to measuring this success. In addition, this minitrack
will be used to explore the bodies of performance measurements that define
the current state of research in measuring knowledge system, KM,
organizational memory, and organizational learning success. Eventually,
another purpose of this minitrack is to present research on how to value
knowledge-based initiatives.



Possible topics include:



·        Frameworks and models for assessing knowledge systems, knowledge
management, and/or organizational memory systems

·        Methodologies and processes for measuring knowledge systems,
knowledge management and/or organizational memory success and performance
