Handbook of Research on Knowledge Management

Adaptation and Context

  • Research Handbooks in Business and Management series

Edited by Anders Örtenblad

This innovative Handbook aims to examine whether there is a need to adapt and widen our understanding of knowledge management. A common definition of knowledge management is taken as the starting point for discussions on its relevance in various contexts, such as Buddhist organizations, law firms, the army and indigenous organizations. Moreover, the universality of Ikujiro Nonaka’s ideas on knowledge management is explored, and some alternative definitions are suggested. This book will appeal to academics and students of business and management, business administration, sociology and organizational behavior. Practitioners, managers and business-owners will also find this an invaluable resource.

Chapter 13: Islamic perspective of knowledge management

Aini Ahmad

Extract

Since the idea of knowledge management is widespread all over the globe, it is timely to discuss the idea in a different context. A discussion of knowledge management in a religious context is still not established. This chapter discusses the idea of knowledge management in the Islamic context. It examines the Islamic view on knowledge, the idea of knowledge management in general and explores the seven C’s knowledge management framework against Islamic principles.
