Institutional Researchers as Knowledge Managers in Universities: Envisioning New Roles for the IR Profession
Teodorescu, Daniel
Tertiary Education and Management, v12 n1 p75-88 Mar 2006
Using concepts from Davenport and Prusak's "Working Knowledge" and other recent research on knowledge management, this article discusses the processes through which institutional knowledge is created, managed and transferred throughout the university and ways in which institutional researchers can improve these processes. A special emphasis is placed on the need to strengthen the "knowledge brokerage" function--an essential role that institutional researchers are expected to play in large universities. Important principles of knowledge management are illustrated with examples from the author's university.
