Log Sheet – ‘Knowledge Economy’ Research Papers.
The knowledge economy is the use of knowledge (savoir, savoir-faire, savoir-etre) to generate tangible and intangible values. Technology and in particular knowledge technology (Artificial Intelligence) help to transform a part of human knowledge to machines. This knowledge can be used by decision support systems in various fields and generate economic values. Knowledge economy is also possible without technology.

  • 1. 1 Log Sheet – ‘Knowledge Economy’ Research Papers Ser Name / Year Main Variables Main Findings Theory Method Used 1. Title Trust in the knowledge economy. The paper is conceptual and a literature review. The intra- and inter-organizational dynamics of the knowledge economy require a unique focus on the development and maintenance of trust. Marketing relationships within and across firms will change and require a renewed emphasis on trust to safeguard the key asset in the knowledge economy, knowledge. Insights on organizational trust, specifically under the paradigm of knowledge- based production systems that characterize a knowledge economy. Conceptual paper Author(s) Marco Tulio Zanini and Michael Musante. Year 2013 2. Title The global knowledge economy in question. The paper is Viewpoint The use of the term “global knowledge economy” fails to acknowledge the uneven distribution of knowledge-based economic activity. Moreover, as currently constituted, the idea of a global knowledge economy, which focuses on knowledge as conceptualized in the commercial activities of advanced countries, overlooks the diversity of knowledge present in the world today. First attempt to question and critically explore the global knowledge economy. Data Collected from sources as cited below: a. Indeed, Chen and Ravallion (2008, p. 19) estimate that in 2005 1.4 billion people, or one quarter of the population of the developing world, lived on less than $1.25 a day. b. UNESCO Data centre, available at: http://stats.uis.unesco.org/un esco/ReportFolders/ReportFo lders.aspx?IF_ActivePath ¼ P,54&IF_Language ¼ eng (accessed 17 August2009). c. R&D intensity is measured as the ratio of gross expenditure on R&D to gross domestic product. d. Human Genome Project Information, available at: www.ornl.gov/sci/techresourc es/Human_ Genome/home.shtml (accessed 12 April 2009). e. Other commercial services are made up of the following services: communications services; construction; insurance Author(s) Joanne Roberts. Year 2009

See also USAID for an example of the promotion of knowledge management practices by an aid agency: http://knowledge.usaid.gov/ (accessed 17 August 2009). h. Information on the Hole in the Wall project is available from: www.hole-in-the- wall.com/ abouthiwel.html (accessed 17 August 2009). The project has recently gained attention for its role in inspiring the book Q&A by Vikas Swarup, published in 2005, upon which the successful British film Slumdog Millionaire is based. 3 Title Workplace innovation: Enterprise of the future From the knowledge worker to The knowledge economy Six billion minds co- creating the future. Paper type is Viewpoint Attracting, retaining, and growing talent is no longer an issue that can be addressed solely from the viewpoint of a single organization. Knowledge workers are highly mobile, and are tending to be more loyal to their peer communities than to an employer. This requires that organizations look beyond their own boundaries, and work together to create living, working, and learning environments that offer a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. One Identify recent trends in how the global knowledge workforce is changing and, in particular, organizing, on a massive scale. Knowledge workers have become highly mobile, with a distinctly global orientation. Trends are presented within the established four-pillar framework for enterprise transformation. Particular emphasis is placed on the dissolution of traditional organizational boundaries (organization pillar), and creating, on a large scale, living, working and learning Author(s) Arthur J. Murray and Kent A. Greenes. Year 2007
  • 3. 3 way to accomplish this on a large scale is the development of knowledge cities, in which the information and knowledge architecture is at least as important as, and possibly more important than, the physical architecture. environments for attracting, retaining, and growing talent (learning pillar). Supporting infrastructure elements are also addressed (technology pillar). 4 Title Gaining competitive advantage. in a knowledge- based economy through the utilization of open source software. Technical paper Open source usage is prevalent throughout the world for governmental, business, educational, military, and space exploration purposes. Notwithstanding, some commercial enterprises such as the Microsoft Corporation have viewed the open source movement as a threat to profitability, citing alleged intellectual property infringement violations. However, other commercial entities such as IBM, Oracle, Novell, and Apple computer have embraced open source technology to conduct business operations as well as satisfy customer needs. Public appeal for open source products has been strong enough for Microsoft, through a recent public statement, to disclose that the firm wishes to “build a bridge” with the open source community, an apparent realization that open source is here to stay. The knowledge worker should understand that commercial and open source applications may coexist in the same IT environment. The purpose of this paper is to educate the knowledge worker on the benefits of using open source software, and to demonstrate how open source methodology promotes the collaborative and innovative attributes of knowledge management. The author lists the open source initiative’s definition for open source products, licensing information, the value of open source in a global economy, misconceived barriers to open source adoption, a functional comparison of open source and commercial software products, and web sites where open source products may be obtained.

  • 4. 4 5 Title Beyond the digital divide: a conceptual framework for analyzing knowledge societies. Conceptual paper While creating a knowledge society encompasses dimensions pertaining to infrastructure, governance, talent and culture, intangible assets are key to sustaining such societies. Governance and culture are instances of such intangibles. Talent may seem to be tangible but the human capacity for learning and development, which leads to an innovative culture, is less so. In any case, time is the essential ingredient for a knowledge culture to come about. The research aims to investigate the notion of knowledge assets developed within digital communities in the course of their economic or leisure activities. Ideally, the resulting knowledge is universal, affordable and relevant; this inclusiveness is a hallmark of any information or knowledge society. The authors first synthesize the related research literature covering the areas of knowledge-based economies, knowledge societies and knowledge policies. A model using 13 dimensions is then developed, which the authors claim is critical for creating a knowledge community in the digital economy. The model is validated against critique from a Delphi panel of researchers in the area. Author(s) Ravi S. Sharma, Elaine W.J. Ng, Mathias Dharmawirya and Chu Keong Lee. Year 2008
