Song, Ji Hoon; Yoon, Seung Won; Yoon, Hea Jun
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v24 n2 p71-88 2011
The primary purpose of the current research was to identify core contextual factors that facilitate or hinder the process of organizational knowledge creation practices. The grounded theory framework and negotiated coding approach were employed. Serving as the fundamental research framework was Nonaka and his colleagues' knowledge creation and conversion theory, along with their proposed knowledge creation enablers. A total of 314 codeable units from 153 individuals were used for data analysis. All answers were coded and categorized into three emerged domains--organization, team/subgroup, and individual--for both areas of facilitating and hindering factors. Limitations and implications for further research are presented in the discussion section. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
