Knowledge Management Models book
To succeed, a knowledge management initiative must have a robust theoretical foundation. The major KM activities described in the KM cycle in the previous chapter require a conceptual framework to operate within; otherwise the activities will not be coordinated and will not produce the expected KM benefits. Knowledge management models are presented from Choo (1998), Weick (2001), Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995), Wiig (1993), von Krogh and Roos (1995), Boisot (1998), Beer (1984), and Bennet and Bennet (2004). All the models present different perspectives on the key conceptual elements that form the infrastructure of knowledge management. This chapter describes, compares, and contrasts each model in order to provide a sound understanding of the discipline of KM.
