Abstract

The knowledge of the intellectual capital of research organizations can benefit from knowledge capture and information sharing processes and practices in the direction of competitive advantage. The integrative perspective is described formed by communication, navigation and multicontact relationship. It supports a dynamic framework for the current ‘open nature’ of knowledge. Foresight project and Horizon Scanning are practices reported in this paper for knowledge capturing in science and technology. These practices have an inclusive and engaging nature that requires participatory processes and investigate cross-cutting aspects and impacts beyond technology developments. In a KMIS 2014 Conference session, the discussions related to this paper focused three overall principles for addressing competitive advantage in R&D group: team effectiveness of both performances and creativity; team collaboration and competition to increase performances; team integration, coordination and synchronization for benefits and values of successful research organizations.
