In Pursuit of the Individual in the Field of Knowledge Management
International Journal of Learning and Change Volume 6, Number 1, ISSN 1740-2875
The aim of this paper is to explore the focus on individuals in the field of knowledge management (KM). Through a meta-review of the KM literature, we identify a relative disregard of the individual in the KM literature while information technology (IT) oriented concepts are widely represented. Our review indicates the need for a greater emphasis on individuals in KM as knowledge is based on individuals' ability and willingness to create, share and transfer knowledge. We offer suggestions on how to integrate individuals into theorising and enacting KM and also identify some avenues for future research. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
