How do we transfer knowledge through everyday meeting talk? - Lesley Crane study asking for participants

How do we transfer knowledge through everyday meeting talk? - Lesley Crane study asking for participants | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"Lesley Crane is a final year PhD student investigating organizational knowledge work - knowledge transfer and sharing. Her study focuses on how such work is accomplished in everyday meeting talk. This seems to me to be an original approach in that it locates the study of knowledge in talk and text, and it is this discourse which she is analysing to investigate how and with what effect people share and create knowledge. 

She is looking to engage with organizations who would be willing to take part in her study. It is unobtrusive - she doesn't even need to be present! All she needs are good recordings of any type of organizational meeting. The only proviso is that participants need to be English speakers! Confidentiality and anonymity are guaranteed. 

If you would like to help please get in touch with Lesley via email @ l.crane1@unimail.derby.ac.uk. 

If this approach intrigues you as it does me then you will find two of her past papers here

Knowledge Management Research & Practice Journal
"KMRP provides an outlet for high quality, peer reviewed articles on all aspects of managing knowledge, organisational learning, intellectual capital and knowledge economics. This includes not just those focused on the organisational level, but all levels from that of the individual to that of the nation or profession. 

The journal includes both theoretical and practical aspects, and especially the relationship between the two. There is a particular emphasis on cross-disciplinary approaches, and on the mixing of "hard" (e.g. technological) and "soft" (e.g. cultural or motivational) issues. Rigorous contributions from both academics and practitioners are welcomed. 

KMRP provides:

A single focus for this rapidly evolving and multidisciplinary fieldA bridge between research and practiceA broad global perspective."

Knowledge management and community – a free virtual issue of JASIST | Exchanges

Knowledge management and community – a free virtual issue of JASIST | Exchanges | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"JASIST, the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, has published a wealth of scholarly papers on knowledge development, knowledge sharing, communities of practice over the years and other KM-relevant topics.  We reproduce here a recent Virtual Issue covering in particular the theme of knowledge management within a community.

There is a substantial body of knowledge management (KM) literature that deals with how individuals and groups develop knowledge and share it within different organizational structures. Along with a sampling of such studies, we also present others that touch upon how these communities exchange knowledge in interdisciplinary collaborations, what behaviors and intentions with respect to knowledge sharing (KS) and knowledge consumption they exhibit, what individual motivations they might have when sharing knowledge online, how communities of practice use technology, and how knowledge sources can influence KS. We similarly include papers on the application of these KM ideas and frameworks to other fields of study.  (See full editorial for this Virtual Issue here)."
