Knowledge Activists’ Successes and Failures

Abstract: Firms are increasingly relying on “knowledge activists” to facilitate the flow of knowledge. This paper discusses which initiatives by activists are most likely to succeed. It identifies a conceptual framework that illustrates the conditions essential to full knowledge sharing and illustrates its effectiveness through a selection of case studies. It concludes by saying that the rigidity and priorities of organisations often preclude the flexibility and entrepreneurism necessary for successful knowledge initiatives.
