The dynamic nature of organizational knowledge creation (Nonaka & Takeuchi, 1995) and the transformation of tacit and explicit knowledge provide useful frameworks for analysis and performance in the knowledge economy. Knowledge creation management in Western companies has largely focussed on the development of explicit knowledge and has overlooked social capital and its influence on knowledge generation and diffusion.

This paper examines knowledge creation in Western and Japanese firms, links knowledge creation to organizational innovation and creativity, and explores knowledge creation management in the Australian context.
