Dynamic Models of Knowledge in Virtual Organizations

  title={Dynamic Models of Knowledge in Virtual Organizations},
  author={Yan Ren and Xueshan Luo},
The dynamics of knowledge is important for virtual organizations (VOs) knowledge management (KM) to improve the fast response capabilities and flexible problem solving capabilities of VOs in complex environments. This paper proposes a method of modeling knowledge dynamics in VOs, which is composed of three models: knowledge flow model, knowledge conversion model and knowledge sharing space model. The models depict the dynamics of knowledge and design the operation mechanisms of knowledge in VOs…

Service-Oriented Knowledge Modeling Method and its Application

A multi-perspective knowledge service description model (KSDM) for overall knowledge service modeling is proposed, which pays attention to the executable part such as the dynamics, process, functionality and context of knowledge within knowledge service, which have not been addressed in existing knowledge service methods.

A network-based diagrammatic approach for visualising the co-creation process based on the use of three main primitives to depict the different forms of involvement and techniques for co- creation is proposed.

The hybrid intelligent systems design using grey systems theory

The main objective of the paper is to discuss how tacit and explicit knowledge determine grey knowledge and how these are stimulated through interactions within networks, forming the grey hybrid

Service-Oriented Knowledge Modeling on Intelligent Topic Map

A new concept of intelligent topic map for knowledge organization and knowledge reasoning is proposed, it embodies the multi-level, multi-granularity and inherent relevant characteristics of knowledge and is established with multi-layer Service-Oriented knowledge architecture with theelligent topic map as infrastructure.



A Dynamic Theory of Organizational Knowledge Creation

This paper proposes a paradigm for managing the dynamic aspects of organizational knowledge creating processes. Its central theme is that organizational knowledge is created through a continuous
