Assessing the Suitability of Process and Information Technology in Supporting Knowledge Transfer

Abstract Knowledge transfer is one of the most important issues in the knowledge sharing context. In fact, information technology’s (IT) supporting role has already been addressed in knowledge transfer processes. Based on this process proposed by Garavelli et al. (2002), this paper conducted an assessment using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) technique. This was carried out in order to disclose the support suitability of IT types for knowledge transfer. The assessment hierarchy has three levels, which are the goal, process, and support levels. According to the 21 domain specialists and scholars’ assessment analysis, the main results suggest that (1) for goal level support, both the knowledge provider’s and receiver’s cognitive characteristics in the main stages of the knowledge transfer process (e.g. thinking behavior, preferences) were of more importance, while (2) requirements of cognitive characteristics management, interactive communication environment, and the tools for consistency analysis of cognitive characteristics were of more importance for process level support. The discussion and implications are also addressed.

Role on Knowledge Transfer of the Mining Sector in Mongolia

Role on Knowledge Transfer of the Mining Sector in Mongolia

Factors and Obstacles Affecting Knowledge Transfer Process Researcher considered following factors as a most influential to knowledge transfer process: Leadership, Information Communication Technology, Team/Co-Workers, Rewards and Incentives. Interview questions were designed to reveal how those factors affect expatriates on knowledge transfer process. Based on the research findings researcher concluded that Mongolian mining company‟s leaders are very supportive about knowledge transfer. They make lot of effort to find capable and sufficient expatriate who will share their knowledge and experience with Mongolian employees. As we can see from the findings all interview participants/expatriates have good education background and diverse experiences to their related fields. Almost all the expatriates were exposed internationally and had a knowledge sharing experience in different countries. Therefore researcher concluded that leadership in Mongolian mining companies encourage and support knowledge transfer between expatriates and Mongolian employees. They emphasize and do their best to bring competent expatriates. In order to be more cheerful and supportive leaders in Mongolian mining companies must give feedback and a comment as knowledge transfer successfully occurs. Because as we can see from findings only two expatriates expressed that they do receive feedback and comments rest did not receive deserved or wanted feedback from their leadership.

The Effects of Knowledge Management Strategies on Innovation and Business Performance in Information Technology Industry

The Effects of Knowledge Management Strategies on Innovation and Business Performance in Information Technology Industry

For the last century, the world has swiftly moves from its industrial economic base, which mostly depends on tangible assets, toward a knowledge base which is tied to the capability of developing and managing knowledge resources. The knowledge economy is built on continuous dynamic value creation, and profits are increasingly coming from knowledge creation, integration, and system-solutions instead of from tangible assets. This change is uprising globally due to the increase of travellers, expenditures, immigration, and communication technologies, making the world more connected and interdependent. Globalisation has facilitated the exchange of goods, services, labour, information, and most importantly, the share of unique ideas and knowledge. Beside all the mutual gains brought by globalisation, competitiveness is accordingly increasing. Short product’s life cycles and a rapid change rate in customers’ needs and preferences are considered typical features as well as challenges of the current industrial paradigm.

Measuring the Effect of KnowledgeSharing and Knowledge Transfer on the Survival and Competitiveness of TaiwanICDF

Measuring the Effect of KnowledgeSharing and Knowledge Transfer on the Survival and Competitiveness of TaiwanICDF

Conclusion The KST Structural Model “Figure 5.1” created by Shih and Augustine offers a range of insights into knowledge sharing and knowledge transfer within TaiwanICDF. This model demonstrates that TaiwanICDF has invested substantial efforts and resources into establishing programs and departments to take forward the knowledge management initiative focusing on capturing implicit knowledge and converting it into explicit knowledge so that it can be disseminated and shared within the organization. However, as a larger non-profit organization, TaiwanICDF maybe wrestling with cultivating an awareness of the importance of knowledge sharing and knowledge transfer at all levels of the organization. Many of the difficulties of sharing knowledge have been acknowledged by other researchers who have studied the implementation of knowledge management in for-profit organizations; even far less in the non-profit sector. Therefore, this study has identified four key factors that are currently acting as barriers to knowledge sharing, employee’s attitude, employee’s ability;

Exploring the interparticle electron transfer process in the photocatalytic oxidation of 4-chlorophenol

Exploring the interparticle electron transfer process in the photocatalytic oxidation of 4-chlorophenol

5. Conclusions In the single-photocatalyst test, ZnO exhibited the high- est catalytic activity and a better degree of reduction of DOC than other single catalyst tests at pH 7 and 11. The observed rate constants of the coupled-catalyst systems, TiO 2 /SnO 2 and ZnO/SnO 2 , are higher than that of TiO 2 and ZnO approxi- mately by a factor of 1.5–3. Also, the reductions of DOC for TiO 2 /SnO 2 and ZnO/SnO 2 tests are 8–20% higher than that of the single-photocatalyst system. One recommended course of action related to this study is to assess the recombina- tion rate within IPET process. A comparison of the model parameters revealed significant trends that can be qualitatively related to the experimental conditions and test systems. Sub- stantially, this study concludes that the IPET effect on the photocatalysis dose deliver the anticipated advantages based on the disappearance rate of 4-CP. The results demonstrate that the recombination rate is prone to decline in systems with a large energy gap, which dose correspond to the concept of IPET process.

Effect of premature serum progesterone rise on embryo transfer outcomes and the role of blastocyst culture and transfer in assisted reproductive technology cycles with premature progesterone rise

Effect of premature serum progesterone rise on embryo transfer outcomes and the role of blastocyst culture and transfer in assisted reproductive technology cycles with premature progesterone rise

Although a significant inverse relationship between serum progesterone on the day of hCG administration and the success of IVF was established in many programs, the involved endocrinological mechanism was unclear. It may involve an ovarian event, with adverse effects on oocyte maturation, fertilization, or early cleavage [2, 24-26, 31]. On the other hand, poorer embryo quality was not reported in other studies [4, 7, 18, 32]. In our series, we did not find adverse effects of PPR on oocyte maturation, number of oocytes retrieved and fertilization results. These findings suggested that PPR may impact the success of IVF, not via an ovarian event, but through its influence on the endometrium, possibly leading to impaired endometrial receptivity.

The Impact of Information Technology on the Banking Industry: Theory and Empirics

The Impact of Information Technology on the Banking Industry: Theory and Empirics

The relationship between IT expenditures and bank’s financial performance or market share is conditional upon the extent of network effect. If the network effect is too low, IT expenditures are likely to (1) reduce payroll expenses, (2) increase market share, and (3) increase revenue and profit. The evidence however suggests that the network effect is relatively high in the US banking industry, implying that although banks use IT to improve competitive advantage, the net effect is not as positive as normally expected. In a broader context, the innovation in information technology, deregulation and globalisation in the banking industry could reduce the income streams of banks, and thus the strategic responses of the banks, particularly the trend towards mega-mergers and internal cost- cutting, are likely to change the dynamics of the banking industry. Given our negative result due to possible network effect, the changing banking environment could still make it insufficient to offset any reduction in income.

The Effect of Organizational Trust, Knowledge Sharing and Knowledge Creation on Innovation and Business Performance of Taiwan High Technology Companies

The Effect of Organizational Trust, Knowledge Sharing and Knowledge Creation on Innovation and Business Performance of Taiwan High Technology Companies

We live in the era of globalization, an era where a call can be made from Asia and received in Africa at virtually no cost thanks to the internet and advances in telecommunications. An era where markets have merged and have become more aggressive, and where companies, in order to stay competitive, try to hire the most qualified employees from all across the globe. Due to this new trend, companies must provide their employees with conditions that allow them to achieve their full capabilities in order to be more profitable. Nevertheless, this creates issues, since there are so many different options when picking a strategy to obtain innovation and optimal business performance, with so many factors that may influence the results. Thus, this study examined and analyzed the effects of organizational trust, knowledge sharing, and knowledge creation on innovation and business performance of Taiwanese high technology company employees. A quantitative study was implemented and statistical analysis tested the relationship of said variables. The study used Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) and Partial Least Squares (PLS), as tools to analyze the collected data, this study includes the descriptive statistics, path coefficients, coefficient of determination (R 2 ), bootstrapping, t-value, Composite Reliability results, Cronbach’s Alpha, correlation, average variance extracted (AVE), Standardized Root Mean Square Residual, Fornell-Larcker Criterion and Heterotrait-Monotrait Ratio. The data for this study was collected from employees of high technology companies in Taiwan. The results of this study showed that there is a strong and positive significant relationship between organizational trust and knowledge sharing, organizational trust and knowledge creation, , knowledge creation and knowledge sharing, knowledge creation and innovation, innovation and business performance, a weak correlation between organizational trust and business performance and finally with regards to knowledge sharing and innovation, the results showed that there was not a significant correlation between the two variables, this was explained because in order to protect their confidentiality, departments don’t usually share their information with others unless strictly required and get their innovation process trough knowledge creation.

The Dynamic Assessment of Information Technology Investment

The Dynamic Assessment of Information Technology Investment

Received May 2006; revised October 2006 Abstract. Evaluating the effectiveness of Information Technology (IT) investment has always been an elusive but important goal of IS researchers. The purpose of this paper is to present new dynamic approaches in the IT benefits evaluation. We use essential financial indicators to measure the impact of sample entities which performed IT in- vestment before December 31, 2004 in China and Taiwan. From the field study we find that both in China and Taiwan, the IT investment make a negative impact. However, from the Taiwan experience, most entITrises will meet the temporary decline situation after implementing the IT investment, but in the long-term, about 4 years, it will make a significant financial progress. While in China after IT investment, it always keeps a negatively related performance.
