Abstract

This chapter has three objectives. First, we examine the transformation of data to knowledge as the outcome of human enactment that imposes increasing levels of structure on signals and data. Second, we present a typology of organizational knowledge that differentiates between tacit knowledge, explicit knowledge, and cultural knowledge. Third, we introduce major theoretical models that attempt to explain the dynamics of creating, diffusing, and using organizational knowledge.
