Understanding knowledge management: critical and postmodern perspectives
Knowledge management has emerged as a new perspective on organizations. Conceiving of firms as based on their capacity to create, distribute and make use of knowledge, Knowledge Management theory takes an alternative view of the nature of the firm. Understanding Knowledge Management presents an integrated critique of the Knowledge Management theory perspective, aiming to discuss the ontological, epistemological, and political qualities of concepts such as "knowledge" and "management".
Drawing on critical and postmodern theory, Understanding Knowledge Management calls for a more elaborated view of the organizational resource called knowledge.
