  • The study aims to explore the rural extension specialist's role and capacity of knowledge management (KM) extension service in the knowledge based society. According to major findings through previous study and literature review, the followings were concluded. Rural extension educator's role and ability of knowledge management composed four processes by the stage of knowledge process: knowledge creation-knowledge storage-knowledge utilization-knowledge share. As a adoption of the knowledge management in rural extension service, at the knowledge creation the rural extension educator's role of KM are four roles which needed fourteen abilities to carry out them successfully. For at the knowledge storage the rural extension educator's role of KM are eight roles which needed eight abilities to carry out them successfully. For at the knowledge utilization the rural extension educator's role of KM are eight roles which needed ten abilities to carry out them successfully. Lastly for at the knowledge sharing the rural extension educator's role of KM are nine roles which needed 8 abilities to carry out them successfully.

  • This paper argues that there are circulative linkages between knowledge creation, sharing and utilization in innovative clusters. Based upon discussion about characteristics of circulative linkages between three types of knowledge activities, this paper presents three hypotheses: the more regions generate knowledge, the more active they share knowledge (hypothesis I); the more regions share knowledge, the more vigorous they utilize knowledge (hypothesis II) and the more regions generate knowledge, the more vigorous they utilize knowledge (hypothesis III). Empirical analysis into the Korean case turned out that hypotheses I and III were strongly supported, but hypothesis II weakly supported, probably due to inaccurate proxies for knowledge activities. This study may help guide provincial governments to choose policy goals to promote knowledge activities. It also leads to the conclusion that maintaining balance among three types of knowledge activities (creation, sharing and utilization) is a way of their policy making for the promotion of innovative clusters.

  • The recent advance of information and communication technologies has made the identity of public libraries ambiguous. Few literatures have dealt with a local community public library from knowledge creation perspective. In this article we extend the applicability of the concepts such as knowledge management and knowledge city to local public libraries whose major role needs to change from the traditional book rental to knowledge and social capital creating entity. Based on the concepts, we propose a framework for analyzing the public library as a center of knowledge creation. Using the framework, we analyze the Ridgewood Public Library in New Jersey to test the validity of the framework.

  • Knowledge management has recently emerged as an appealing subject in management literature. Although its history is short, it can benefit greatly from the long history of other related disciplines in building its theories. Innovation, organizational learning, knowledge creation, organizational capability building, technology transfer and network, information technology, organizational behavior, and intellectual capital are the disciplines that have accumulated theories related to knowledge management. This paper first presents a conceptual framework that integrates three dimensions: the characteristics of knowledge (tacit and explicit), knowledge process (acquisition, creation, diffusion, storing, measurement, and application of knowledge), and the unit of analysis (individual, organization, sector, and nation). The conceptual framework produces a number of cells that need to be filled by new theories in order to understand knowledge management better. It then reviews existing theories available in the related disciplines that may be used as building blocks in constructing new theories for these cells. Finally, based on the theories available in other disciplines, the paper suggests a set of future research directions for knowledge management at the level of individual, organization, sector, and nation.

  • This study focuses on the mediating role of creativity on the knowledge management process. To confirm focal hypotheses, we conducted survey on 538 employees of foreign subsidiaries of global enterprises. Main findings are: first, creativity turned out to positively mediate the effect of knowledge transfer on the firm's performance; second, the mediating role of creativity differs depending on the domain of acquiring knowledge such as exploitation and exploration. This research found that the influence of exploitative knowledge on knowledge creation and innovative performance was stronger. As such, among tension view and foundational view, which are two competing views on the relationship between knowledge and creativity, the latter is more soundly supported.

  • I have tried to find a concept among different perspectives on knowledge management. A practical framework of the enhancement of firm's competence through knowledge accumulations was developed as follows: First, All human factors should be armed with information based knowledge and leaded by chief knowledge officer. Second, Learning organization is necessary to develope knowledge creation. Third, Organization has to be controlled by information based control system for the effective linkage of several sort of information. Fourth, Shared culture of knowledge internalized by all members must help organization generate and articulate a new form of knowledge. Finally, Several information technologies and instrumental system may faster creation of knowledge. Especially, in this paper, focused on role of knowledge-based people. It is new view of knowledge-based management studies.

  • The knowledge creation in early stages of new service development plays a critical role in the success of the service. The user is a crucial resource in creating knowledge in early stages of development, and user involvement is necessary. There are three roles the user can take part as in service development: informative, consultative, or participative. Based on these different roles, the process of knowledge creation varies. With this background, we proposed to investigate which creative processes need to be passed through in order to positively affect service development based on the role of the user in early stages of Internet service development. This case study was undertaken based on two new projects. The results of this study reveal the relationship between the knowledge creation process and user in early stages of development and at the same time provide guidelines regarding user involvement in actual service development.

  • Knowledge creation and management are regarded as critical success factors for an organization's survival in the knowledge era. As a process of knowledge acquisition and sharing, organizational learning mechanisms (OLMs) guide the learning function of organizations represented by its different learning activities. We examined a variety of learning processes that constitute OLMs. In this study, we aimed to capture the process and framework of OLMs and knowledge sharing and acquisition. Factors facilitating OLMs were investigated at three levels: individual, group, and organizational. The concept of an OLM has received some attention in the field of organizational learning, however, the relationship among the factors generating OLMs has not been empirically tested. As part of the ongoing discussion, we attempted a systemic approach for OLMs. OLMs can be represented by factors that are inherent to the organization's system; therefore, prior to empirically testing the OLM generating factor(s), evaluation of its organizational integration is required to determine effective treatment of each factor. Thus, we developed a framework to manage knowledge and proposed a method to numerically evaluate factors influencing the OLMs. Specifically, composite importance (CI) of the Decision-Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) method was applied to explore the interaction effect of these factors based on systemic approach. The augmented matrix thus generated is expected to serve as a stochastic matrix of an absorbing Markov chain.
