LINGUISTIX&LOGIK, Tony Marmo's blog

MONDAY, 21 JUNE 2004
Here is an interesting topic for discussion: The Relationship between Understanding and Knowledge. This issue has been and will certainly continue to be approached from several perspectives.

In the website The Examined Life there is a more general debate What is Knowledge by Paul Rezendes, Mitch Hodge and Graham Dennis.

On this same issue I have also found three other interesting documents. Firstly there are the papers below:


Knowledge Discourses and Interaction Technology

by Carsten S?rensen & Masao Kakihara

Research within knowledge management tends to either overemphasize or underestimate the role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Furthermore, much of the ICT support debate has been shaped by the data-information- knowledge trichotomy and too focused on repository-based approaches.
We wish to engage in a principled debate concerning the character and role of knowledge technologies in contemporary organizational settings. The aim of this paper is to apply four perspectives on the management of knowledge to highlight four perspectives on technological options. The paper presents, based on four knowledge discourses --four interrelated perspectives on the management of knowledge-- four perspectives on ICT support for the management of knowledge each reviewing relevant literature and revealing a facet of how we can conceptualize the role of technology for knowledge management.
The four technology discourses focus on the: Production and distribution of information; interpretation and navigation of information; codification and embedding of collaboration; and establishment and maintenance of connections.


Innovation through Knowledge Codification

by Carsten S?rensen and Ulrika Snis

Academics and business professionals are currently showing a significant interest in understanding the management of knowledge and the roles to be played herein by information and communication technology
(ICT). In this paper we take a closer look at one of the primary issues raised when supporting the management of knowledge how to understand the role of knowledge classification and codification as means for further organisational learning and innovation. Two manufacturing cases are analysed using particular perspectives from current theories on classification, the management of knowledge and organisational innovation.
It is concluded that a more complex understanding of the interplay between cognitive and community models for knowledge management as informed by research on social processes of classification can inform our understanding of both the role of classification of knowledge for organisational innovation and on the viability of providing ICT support based on codified knowledge.

There is also a post from the Desert Landscapes blog in the link above.
