Back in June 2015 Dr Louise Rasmussen presented a paper at the i3 conference entitled A KM implementation as management innovation: the impact of an agent of change. Louise and I have since developed this work into an article for the and it has just been accepted for publication. Journal of Information Science, The paper will appear in a special issue of the journal in June 2016.
The theme of
the paper is the introduction and adoption of a Knowledge Management programme within a large distributed public sector agency in Europe. It discusses in detail the results of research that sought to provide insight into the adoption process associated with management innovations, with a focus on decision-making. As well as extending theoretical perspectives on KM, this work developed a model that can be used by KM practitioners as a tool for project management at particular points of the management innovation process, taking into account local contexts.
full text of the accepted paper is available for download. The slides for the earlier conference presentation can also be found on my SlideShare account.
