About this book

This book explores organizational knowledge and how it can be pragmatically exploited within many of today’s socio-technical-economic contexts. It provides both conceptual and empirical findings across different organizational contexts, addressing areas which have either been under-developed, such as power in relationship to knowledge, or require further examination, such as the role a more holistic, action-oriented view can contribute towards identifying and retaining expert knowledge within an organization, especially within digital environments. Further, it looks at how different perceptions, mental models, beliefs, and emotions (or lack of), as well as differing actions and behaviors, affect our abilities to detect hidden risks. This book will guide researchers in rendering the relationship between the managing of knowledge and the presence of risk more visible.
