Title
Nonaka's subjectivist conception of knowledge in corporate knowledge management
Source
Knowledge organization. 24(1997) no.1, S.24-32
Year
1997
Abstract
In recent years management and business studies have witnessed the emergence of a new field of activity, named corporate knowledge management (CKM). The primary goal of this management discipline is to enhance and improve the use of knowledge as a corporate resource in organizations. Theoretical and practical initiatives in this area of management, however, have met with some difficulty regarding the conception of knowledge that should guide these efforts. This paper critically examines the contribution of Nonaka (1994) to this conceptual problem. While we support Nonaka's reasons for chossing a subjectivist epistemology in this managerial context, we argue that he is seriously misguided with regard to the philosophical and managerial ramifications of his choice. Consequently, we doubt whether Nonaka's views can serve as a successful paradigm for corporate knowledge management
