Abstract:

Knowledge is power. Knowledge is the foundation upon which researchers build as they innovate. Innovation lies at the core of a states or a firms 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.
