I believe this deals with the creation and application of knowledge in business, on the ascending scale of data - information - knowledge - wisdom.

Knowledge: Creation, Organization and Use was the name of the ASIS (American Society For Information Science) Annual Conference that was held 31 October – 4 November, 1999 in Washington, D.C.


http://www.asis.org/Conferences/am99call.html

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Katz School of Business, University of Pittsburgh. I am trying to locate any references on PCP that directly or indirectly relate to the measurement of 'knowledge creation' within individuals, groups, and organizations. The specific objective is to discover/devise valid and reliable measures for studying the incremental/discontinuous creation of new knowledge.


http://www.tayfundemiroz.com/New Economy/Knowledge Creation/...

In his essay on ‘The Knowledge Creating Company’, Ikujiro Nonaka puts forward a particular pattern for creating knowledge in organisations. He outlines the process by which the individual’s personal knowledge (tacit) can be transformed into organisational knowledge (explicit) that is able to bring value to the company as a whole.

“Knowledge Creation: How to Unlock the Mystery of Tacit Knowledge and Release the Power of Innovation, by Georg Von Krogh, Kazuo Ichijo, Ikujiro Nonaka

The creation of knowledge is not simply a compilation of facts but a uniquely human process that cannot be reduced or easily replicated.

The fragility of knowledge creation means that it must be carefully supported by a number of activities that enable it to happen in spite of the obstacles.

The concept of care matters most in an organization when those in charge provide a context in which knowledge is created and shared freely.

Managers cannot embark on an advancement strategy unless they understand how each of the knowledge-creation steps is related to the others and can be fostered.

Activists are essential for cross-leveling of knowledge, since they are the people responsible for energizing and connecting knowledge-creation efforts throughout a company

"The whole process of knowledge creation depends on sensitive and aware managers who encourage a social setting in which knowledge continues to grow.

Knowledge is globalized through re-creation?not mere imitation?at the local level.”
