Is knowledge an economic good? Which are the characteristics of the institutions regulating the production and diffusion of knowledge? Cumulation of knowledge is a key determinant of economic growth, but only recently knowledge has moved to the core of economic analysis. Recent literature also gives profound insights into events like scientific progress, artistic and craft development which have been rarely addressed as socio-economic institutions, being the domain of sociologists and historians rather than economists. This volume adopts a multidisciplinary approach to bring knowledge in the focus of attention, as a key economic issue.

This book brings together the research of a number of scholars in the field of knowledge creation and imparts a sense of order to the field. The chapters share three characteristics: they are all grounded in extensive qualitative and/or quantitative research; they all go beyond the mere description of the knowledge-creation process and offer both theoretical and strategic implications; they share a view of knowledge creation and knowledge transfer as delicate processes, necessitating particular forms of support from managers.

English summary: Knowledge has become one of the most important resources in many economic, technological and academic domains. To understand the impact and potential of this development towards a knowledge-based economy and technology in the respective fields, we have to take a closer look at the processes responsible for bringing about new knowledge. Work in this field reveals that cooperative forms of learning are among the major sources of such knowledge. Consequently, this book supports the claim that learning is a process of cooperative knowledge creation and not simply a process of knowledge transfer. The focus of the collection of articles in this book is on how communication, cooperation, negotiation, knowledge creation, and innovation can be integrated into a comprehensive notion of learning. Cognition and technology both play a major role in the integration of these knowledge processes, as they are ultimately the foundation on which any form of cooperative learning is based. The articles in this book provide an overview of the state-of-the-art approaches, models and technologies in the highly dynamic field of cooperative learning. They cover the subject matter from both a theoretical and a practical perspective and offer several best practice examples of some of the key work being carried out in this field. German text. German description: Wissen ist zur wichtigsten Ressource in vielen okonomischen, technologischen und wissenschaftlichen Bereichen geworden. Um zu verstehen, welche Konsequenzen und welches Potenzial diese Entwicklung zu einer Wissensgesellschaft hat, ist ein neues Verstandnis fur die Prozesse der Wissensgenerierung notig. Aktuelle Forschungen bestatigen, dass kooperative Lernformen eine primare Quelle neuen Wissens sind. Daher versteht dieses Buch Lernen nicht als blossen Wissenstransfer, sondern als kooperative Wissensgenerierung. Wie kann man Kommunikation, Kooperation, Verhandlung, Knowledge Creation und Innovation zu einem integrierten Bild des Lernens zusammenfuhren? Welche Rolle spielen kognitive Prozesse und (Wissens-)Technologie? Dieser Band gibt einen Uberblick uber die aktuellen Ansatze, Modelle und Technologien im dynamischen Feld des kooperativen Lernens. Die Artikel sprechen sowohl aus theoretischer als auch aus praktischer Perspektive und bieten eine Vielzahl an konkreten Anwendungsbeispielen aus diesem Bereich.

There is an increasing scientific and political sensibility for questions regarding the "governance of a knowledge society" and the societal benefits and problems of a "knowledge economy". The Global Governance of Knowledge provides a survey and analysis of international agreements and institutions, global and regional, which regulate the creation and dissemination of knowledge. The volume utilises case studies and a comparative country / thematic approach to prove a comprehensive survey of the regulation and governance of knowledge flow, research and innovation. By identifying activities creating new knowledge, such as education and migration, it demonstrates how knowledge regulation and diffusion works in practice and policy. The book will be of interest to students and scholars of globalization, international relations and policy regulation.

The concepts and theories of knowledge management and networks are well documented. Yet there are few, if any, guidelines on how to implement knowledge management within an organization, especially focusing on how to manage knowledge in a network environment. This book visualizes paths that allow one to make connections between theories, concepts and concrete actions. It shows how to integrate these different roots into a holistic view on managing knowledge in networks. It develops a methodology which will support the reader to move concrete steps forward towards building and maintaining knowledge networks in his organization.

The main purpose of the book is to discuss new trends in the dynamic geography of innovation and argue that in an era of increasing globalization, two trends seem quite dominant: rigid territorial models of innovation, and localized configurations of innovative activities. The book brings together scholars who are working on these topics. Rather than focusing on established concepts and theories, the book aims to question narrow explanations, rigid territorializations, and simplistic policy frameworks; it provides evidence that innovation, while not exclusively dependent on regional contexts, can be influenced by place-specific attributes. The book will bring together new empirical and conceptual work by an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars from areas such as economic geography, innovation studies, and political science. Based on recent discussions surrounding innovation systems of different types, it aims to synthesize state-of-the-art know-how and provide new perspectives on the role of innovation and knowledge creation in the global political economy.

The author analyzes new ways to bring knowledge management to a practical level. By drawing on different fields of theory, e.g., resource-based view, knowledge-based view and Transaction Cost Economics, the author develops a framework, which shows significant dependencies of the use of incentive systems and knowledge management. In a detailed analysis these incentive systems are broken down in different parts, e.g. target setting, use of monetary and non-monetary incentives, and incentive intensity.<BR> The book is based on an empirical study of 21 companies across Europe and 110 points of contact. Knowledge management experts from different fields have provided information, which helped to focus research and produce results of practical use.

Knowledge is becoming more and more important as an individual good, and as a social and economic resource. The research project outlined in this publication focuses on the question how knowledge processes can be optimally stimulated in the cooperative context of forum-based Online Knowledge Communities (OKCs). Starting point of the research is a literature review and the outline of individual hypotheses on the basis of an interdisciplinary body of research from the fields of computer and management science. Following the literature review, an empirical study is presented and discussed. The empirical parts is founded on an Univariate Analysis of Variance (Anova)-based calculation of knowledge process contribution values and a Structural Equation Model analysis (Sem)-based hypotheses test of individual factors of impact on individuals' knowledge process contributions. The publication integrates existing, fragmented research into an integrated model of forum-based collaborative knowledge management.

This book is about how to implement creative competition within an organization. It examines the conditions under which internal competition can promote knowledge acquisition and knowledge sharing. The book describes a number of studies of sales departments in Japanese firms. Sales departments in Japanese firms were studied because internal competition is getting fiercer in these departments following the recent introduction of performance-based compensation. Exploratory case studies of ORIX Corporation and Japan Computer were conducted in order to generate research hypotheses. To gather quantitative data and test the hypotheses drawn from the case studies, a questionnaire survey of sales departments of Japanese firms listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was carried out. The findings reported in the book shed new light not only on internal competition theory, but also provide new insights into the theories on knowledge creation and intra-organizational conflict.
