Organisational knowledge integration: towards a conceptual framework
Mohannak, Kavoos (2012) Organisational knowledge integration: towards a conceptual framework. In Uden, Lorna, Herrera, Francisco, Perez, Javier, & Rodriguez, Juan (Eds.) 7th International Conference on Knowledge Management in Organizations: Service and Cloud Computing,, Springer-Verlag, Salamanca, Spain, pp. 81-92.
This study analyses organisational knowledge integration processes from a multi-level and systemic perspective, with particular reference to the case of Fujitsu. A conceptual framework for knowledge integration is suggested focusing on team-building capability, capturing and utilising individual tacit knowledge, and communication networks for integrating dispersed specialist knowledge required in the development of new products and services. The research highlights that knowledge integration occurring in the innovation process is a result of knowledge exposure, its distribution and embodiment and finally its transfer, which leads to innovation capability and competitive advantage in firm.
