  • The current study attempts to provide the field of knowledge management with theoretical grounds from the perspective of social network, resource dependency, and institutional theory. Social network theory considers that knowledge management plays a critical role in organizational innovation through the process of knowledge sharing/creation, communication systems, and a cooperative culture and trust, whereas resource dependency perceives knowledge management as contributing to cost reduction through the process of knowledge capture/storage, database systems, and reward/incentive systems. Plus, from the perspective of institutionalization, this study discusses that organizations can not benefit from knowledge management if it is adopted with the motive of isomorphic change. Finally, this study compares and integrates the three perspectives, and discusses the implications and limitations.

In today's rapidly changing business environment, companies have rigorously brought in knowledge management system in order to secure the sustainable competitiveness and effective knowledge management.

To solve this problem, software oriented strategy for knowledge management such as education and networking is more needed rather than hardware oriented strategy such as information technology systems. Though the knowledge management framework suggested in this study is exploratory, this study contributes to the clarification of the critical elements that companies which are about to build knowledge management should take in account.

  • As knowledge has become the most important means of production for a company to survive in a "knowledge-based society", knowledge management has become the key issue in the corporate sector. Despite its growing significance, there are limited numbers of research that describe how companies actually develop, share and practice their knowledge. From this perspective, this study used a qualitative approach to explore on the actual process of knowledge management implementation. In-depth interviews with eleven senior managers, who were working at S global corporation, were conducted. The results show that there are differences between how the participants perceive and how they actually perform in managing knowledge. While the participants tend to conceptualize knowledge management as building a technical system, their performance has shown that knowledge has been developed and shared through active interaction among the members in the company. The factors that impede knowledge management were caused by the individualized job assignment and inapplicable exercises that result in obscuring information flow and utilizing inadequate and low quality of knowledge. The findings of this study imply that knowledge management is not a matter of formality but a paradigm that assures for the flow and share of knowledge.

New information technology is also a core factor enabling the innovation of knowledge management. Semantic Web of which the goal is to realize machine-processable Web can't help affecting the knowledge management. Therefore, we empirically analyze the relationship between user's dissatisfaction and barriers or limitations of knowledge management and present methods allowing Semantic Web to overcome the limitations and to support knowledge management processes. Based on a questionnaire survey of 222 respondents, we found that the limitations of system qualities such as user inconvenience of knowledge management systems, search and integration limitations, and the limitations of knowledge qualities such as inappropriateness and untrust significantly affected the user dissatisfaction of knowledge management systems. Finally, we suggest a conceptual model of knowledge management systems of which components are resources, metadata, ontologies, and user & query layers.

  • Recently, more firms have shown an interest in implementing knowledge management methods. However, few companies are capable of adopting knowledge management methods effectively to improve organizational performance because it is still unclear how these methods improve corporate performance. To find this relationship between knowledge management methods and organizational performance, this paper analyses effects of knowledge management methods on corporate performance empirically. 51 Korean firms are selected as a sample base for empirical tests. Knowledge management methods can be categorized into four styles; harmony, codification, personalization, and ignorance. For example, the emphasis of harmony style is on both knowledge reusability using information technologies and knowledge sharing through informal intimacy among employees. Corporate performance varies depending on styles. Harmony style is founded to be most effective for corporate performance. Personalization and codification styles don't show any difference. This outcome is in line with the general observation that both tacit knowledge and explicit knowledge are important for effective knowledge management.

  • The main purpose of this study is to develop a framework of knowledge management and knowledge management systems(KMS) for retail firms. The framework of knowledge management developed in this paper is based on six components: knowledge worker, KMS, leadership of CEO, knowledge management strategy, culture, evaluation and reward systems. The knowledge management process can be divided into four stages: preparation stage, initiation stage, expansion stage and completion stage. The major activities performed to implement effective knowledge management are also identified for each stage. The knowledge base of KMS for retail firms should store three types of knowledge: knowledge for management activity, knowledge for management activity, knowledge for strategic analysis, and knowledge for problem solving. Finally, the technical characteristics of KMS are also examined in terms of information technology.
