Abstract

Understanding the contexts of knowledge is necessary to manage knowledge processes successfully. The goal of this paper is to provide a theoretical framework for understanding and utilizing knowledge that is embedded in contexts, focusing on the relationship between time and knowledge processes. This paper integrates the time lens and the literature on the knowledge based view to develop four different time contexts that can enable different organizational knowledge processes. Propositions on how to utilize time to create enabling contexts for organizational knowledge creation and innovation are developed. Suggested intervention strategies help to create contexts for knowledge creation and exploitation.
