Topical Collection in Encyclopedia: Knowledge Management in Encyclopedia
The scope of this Special Issue is dedicated to exploring the role played by knowledge management in business development in the context of the knowledge economy. Knowledge has become, in recent decades, a strategic resource that is crucial when it comes to developing dynamic capabilities and achieving a competitive advantage. Knowledge-intensive businesses have almost had an exponential evolution in the last years, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Managing uncertainty as a result of knowledge absence is based on the capacity of knowledge management to create new knowledge and to share it in an intra-organizational and an inter-organizational stimulating innovation and entrepreneurship. Business development is strongly dependent on efficient knowledge management systems and knowledge strategies. The purpose of the present Special Issue is to reveal the dynamics between knowledge management and business development, and to explore new ideas, theories, models, strategies and practical lessons which can be implemented by companies to increase their competitiveness and value creation for society. At the same time, they will contribute to the advancement of the knowledge foundations of business management and creating “wise” companies, as described by Ikujiro Nonaka and Takeuchi Hirotaka. The suggested topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Knowledge management capacity to influence business development and entrepreneurship.
- Knowledge management in times of crises and lessons learned for business development from the COVID-19 pandemic.
- New models for knowledge dynamics which can explore knowledge management systems beyond the models created by Ikujiro Nonaka and his colleagues.
- Knowledge dynamics and its role in developind dynamic capabilities and achieving a competitive advantage.
- Knowledge dynamics and its importance in business decision-making.
- Knowledge creation, knowledge sharing and business innovation.
- Knowledge risks and business risks.
- Organizational learning and the learning organizations.
- Organizational spirituality and the wise company.
- Consumer knowledge management and consumer behavior.
