Title: Knowledge management: A neuro-hemispherical view of the field
Authors: Sharif, A M
Keywords: Knowledge Management, Cross-cultural context, Cognitive lens

Abstract: The definition and subsequent use of knowledge within and across organisational and social contexts has been a vibrant and evolving growth area over many years. Understanding the notion of Knowledge Management (KM) as an ensemble approach, through the codification, manipulation, dissemination and distribution of information, poses more questions than it answers. The ability to recognise the basis of KM in this regard, involves the tracing of a social or a systems view of knowledge, across cultural contexts (most notably in terms of Western or Eastern philosophies and ontologies). By highlighting the weak and strong push / pull forces of codification versus collaboration in such a manner, can provide us with a possible technique to discern between these worldviews of knowledge and thus ameliorate the many definitions of KM and the associated complexity of its implementation.
