Abstract : "Knowledge is power." Knowledge is the foundation upon which researchers build as they innovate. Innovation lies at the core of a state's or a firm's ability to survive in a competitive world. Indeed, some economic historians aver that technological innovation, not trade, is the engine to economic growth (see, e.g., Lewis, 1978; Schumpeter, 1994). Despite the centrality of knowledge to corporate success, analysts have only recently shown an interest in the "knowledge capital" or "intellectual capital" of the firm, often literally trying to assign a value to this resource. Suddenly knowledge management has become a topic du jour for the media (Oroves, 1998; Hammonds, Jackson, DeGeorge, & Morris, 1997; Hiltzik, 1997; Plate, 1997), government agencies (Dalton & Serapio, 1995), and public and private think tanks (Arquilla & Ronfeldt, 1998), as well as serious scholarship (Pinelli, Kennedy, Barclay, & Bishop, 1997; Strange, 1988). It was even the subject of the Winter 1996 special issue of the Strategic Management Journal (Schendel, 1996).
