View description The book explains the basic concepts of social networks, collaboration, innovation and knowledge management, stressing the importance of knowledge creation and innovation.
It develops a systematic approach to the design of business architecture, taking into account the need to match social structure to business activities. This study applied structural equation modelling to test the proposed research model and hypotheses. Findings: The findings show that environmental factors subjective norms, trust and personal factors knowledge self-efficacy, enjoyment in helping others had positive impacts on KSB; KSB had a strongly positive effect on innovative behaviour; and transformational leadership positively moderated the effects of subjective norms, trust and knowledge self-efficacy on KSB.
Interestingly, psychological ownership of knowledge was found to have insignificant associations with KSB. Practical implications: The study findings can be used by university leaders, academic staff and researchers in other similar contexts. This study aims to examine the influences of environmental and personal factors on knowledge-sharing behaviour KSB of academics and whether more influence leads to superior innovative work behaviour IWB at the tertiary level in Vietnam.
A questionnaire survey was conducted as part of the study, including academic staff at Hanoi University, one of the leading public universities in Vietnam. This study applies the structural equation modelling SEM to investigate the research model based on social cognitive theory SCT.
The results show that two environmental factors subjective norms and trust and two personal factors knowledge self-efficacy and enjoyment in helping others significantly influence KSB. The results also indicate that employee willingness to share knowledge enables the organisation to promote innovative work behaviour.
The study context was limited to only one Vietnamese university. It appears that the part of a bigger picture of knowledge sharing KS in Vietnamese universities is likely to be lost.
However, given the previous studies on knowledge sharing in both developed and developing countries, it could be expected that the results of this study can be taken forward by university leaderships, academic staff and researchers in other contexts as well.
A clear understanding of the critical factors that influence KSB towards promoting innovative work behaviour may help university leaders to develop suitable and evolving strategies to address the challenges of knowledge sharing. This study contributes to the growing literature on the relationships among environmental and personal factors and KSB towards promoting innovative work behaviour. However, assessing the performance of technology business incubators in Saudi Arabia has not well recognized.
This study provides a conceptual framework for assessing technology business incubators based on knowledge sharing practices and sharing, diffusion of innovation and individual creativity.
The results provide empirical insights about the performance of technology business incubators. The findings show knowledge donation and collection has positive effects on technology business incubator. The importance-performance map analysis shows additional findings and conclusions for managerial actions. View description The Australian Post Office is establishing a computer network which will perform all its new ADP tasks and gradually take over the tasks which have already been developed for and are operating on its existing batch processing facilities.
The considerable geographical extension together with the relatively low population density in most parts of the continent emphasize the role which communications play in the design and implementation of such a network. A lay-out with limited decentralization of main processing power and heavy reliance on line communications was selected.
The approach to the design of this network is described. Issues of centralization of processing facilities are covered. Reliability requirements are defined and given emphasis in design considerations.
Direct information interchange with other systems is expected to occur early, and to grow in the life-time of the first equipment. Restrictions on such intercommunication are recognized to result from lack of general standards. Some aspects of standardization are discussed. To do this, the paper proposes an innovative modelling method for large scale collaboration. This method identifies the collaborative spaces in the collaboration.
It then describes the services to be provided by cloud environments to create and support the collaborative spaces. The support includes defining knowledge flows across system boundaries in ways that support collaboration but provide privacy controls. This paper first introduces related concepts of hypertext learning state space and high level Petri Nets PNs , then proposes a high level timed PN based approach used to providing kinds of adaptation for learning activities by adjusting time attributes of targeted learning state space.
Examples are given while explaining ways to realising adaptive instructions. Possible future directions are also discussed at the end of this paper. Thus, ways are needed to integrate collaborative processes into such business processes. The implication for design methodologies is the need for synergies that integrate collaborative semantics with process metamodels in order to create software applications to assist people to collaborate. The paper suggests synergies between the collaborative and process metamodels and their potential convergence.
The analysis carried out in the paper has revealed a number of metaclasses that could be valuably shared between metamodels to integrate process and collaborative semantics. The LiveNet collaborative metamodel has been incorporated into running software so that the theory built up here is substantiated and shown to be useful.
The paper particularly addresses new learning demands, such as personalized learning, and defines ways of defining learning processes to support such new demands. It then shows how engagements can be used to provide guidelines for selecting information technology services that meet such new demands. It then describes a methodology to identify agent requirements for applications.
It then outlines the services needed to assist learners and ways they can be provided using software agents. A multi-agent architecture for realizing the services is configured, and the roles of the involved agents are described. These are collaborative processes where intense interaction takes place between team members working towards a common goal.
The paper will outline activities that characterize knowledge sharing processes and how to facilitate them through information technology. It will distinguish between prescriptive and emergent processes, suggesting that facilitation for knowledge sharing must emphasize emergent processes.
It will then define what is needed to support such processes and describe ways of doing so using workspace networks. The goals of the project are twofold. C, pp. View description The paper describes a model based method of re-engineering business processes to emphasize workgroup computing. View description Data independence is discussed in the context of program stability following a system change. Data independence is first defined and limitations imposed by the architectures of contemporary data base management systems and by the nature of data base changes outlined.
Methods of overcoming the limitations are then discussed. These include both improvements in data base architecture and the use of standards in the design method. Emphasis is then placed on design methods, which improve data independence with contemporary data base management systems. One class of such methods is then outlined and their ability to improve program stability given a range of data base changes discussed.
View description Criteria for effective design methodologies are defined and some design methodologies compared against these criteria. The criteria call both for disciplined set of integrated design stages as well as for techniques that link program and data base design in a semantically consistent way thus reducing program complexity.
Some shortfalls of existing methodologies in meeting these criteria are discussed and suggestions made for future development. Such suggestion includes calls for closer integration of program and data base design, and for the development of adaptable systems that allow designers to adapt the computer interface to the semantics of the user lever. EC, no. Microprogramming facilitates the development of a problem-oriented machine code, which can be simply generated from the problem-oriented source language by simple translation.
In the system described a problem defined by differential equations is drawn up in the form of an analog diagram. The diagram is coded into an analog-oriented source language which is converted by translation into the analog machine code. The system also allows the machine assembly code to be freely used with the analog input in coding the supervisory and interrupt facilities that are incorporated in the overall system design.
These themes are often stated in terms of frames or perspectives, which are then used to identify specific problems and propose solutions.
Melca provides ways to develop models to support the frames commonly used in addressing problems in complex environments. All rights reserved. This chapter presents a model that can be used to define strategies for designing and implementing a knowledge management on the cloud. The focus of the chapter is on ways to share knowledge while preserving privacy and security in scalable business networks. The model is particularly relevant to cloud technology so that businesses can effectively use features provided by this technology including scalability or availability and its low cost.
That includes the businesses of different sizes, from small to medium, and enterprises. Knowledge management discipline is not an exception to benefit from this technology and its advantages. In this study, we have presented some strategies that may help when implementing knowledge management systems by considering cloud computing as infrastructure.
