I’ve just been reading Knowledge Management: A Personal Knowledge Network Perspective in the Journal of Knowledge Management. The Author, Mohammed Chatti has made a pre-publication version available here.
As stated in the abstract:
The PKN model views knowledge as a personal network and represents a knowledge ecological approach to KM
the emphasis here is on knowledge as a *personal* resource which chimes with my own research on social media and professional learning. An interesting “zooming” out from this research is on the implications for how we (especially researchers) view the organisation: what does an organisation mean; what do (knowledge) workers “engage” with; what are the implications for the intangible value of a firm?; what is the role of management and so much more.
