Knowledge system : a new way of observe the company (English)
Title:Knowledge system - a new way of observe the company Authors:Malin Pärmborn och Susanne Gidlöf Tutor:Anders Nilsson Department:Department of Business and Management Blekinge Institute of Technology Problem:How can processes of problem solving in a project contribute to generation of organizational knowledge in a knowledge company? Course:Master thesis in Business Economy Purpose:By describe the processes of problem solving in two different projects of our two chosen knowledge companies, we will clarify whether problem solving contributes to the generation of organizational knowledge. The purpose of this research is to increase the management consciousness concerning everyday processes that will contribute to the creation and transfer of knowledge. This is a condition to transfer human capital to structure capital and thereby decrease the company?s vulnerability. Approach:We gathered the data we needed through conversations and interviews with people on the two knowledge companies. In order to get complete information about organization culture, we made some observations too. Results:Our main conclusions are as following: It comes natural for most individuals to look for help from others when a problem appears. This process takes place first of all within the project group but also outside. The connection takes place physical between people or through means of communications. The new information and knowledge are documented in the company?s database but a big part is transferred through the personal meeting. The company?s databases should be used on a regular basis and every member of the organization should have access to the database. Knowledge generation demands the right conditions: leadership, culture, structure, reward system and technology that promote knowledge generation. Our research indicates that these factors have different influences on the knowledge process. This is shown in a model in our final discussion.
