By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Investigators discuss new findings in Information Technology. According to news reporting originating from Kaohsiung, Taiwan, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "The main purposes of this study are to develop a knowledge governance mechanism-fit-barrier matrix mode to resolve transfer problems resulting from knowledge characteristics and to clarify the relationship among knowledge characteristics, barriers of knowledge transfer, and effective knowledge transfer in inter-organizational contexts. Design/methodology/approach - The vast literature on knowledge transfer in inter-organizational context has been reviewed."
Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Fooyin University, "Moreover, to develop a theoretical framework, the authors developed a set of arguments based on literature pertaining to the knowledge-based view of knowledge characteristics and barriers and the response of network to inter-organizational knowledge transfer. Knowledge-based view of knowledge characteristics and barriers and knowledge governance may provide a new understanding for network organizations seeking effective knowledge transfer strategies in inter-organizational context. Research limitations/implications - The main contribution to organizational theory is extending information-processing theory to form a new strategic model for inter-organizational knowledge transfer. Practical implications - The fit model of governance mechanisms may help managers to make effective strategies for inter-organizational knowledge transfer. Originality/value - Theoretically, this paper extends Information Processing Theory to inter-organizational relationships research. The developed model here also helps to explain the importance of cognitive dimensions for successful inter-organizational knowledge transfer."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In KM practice, the proposed well-developed strategic models may help managers to link inter-organizational knowledge transfer processes to business strategy, and validate of the way to convert the goal of making their network organizations more intelligent into a strategic action."
