The aim of this course is to provide an opportunity to the students for understanding the importance of knowledge management in organizations as an intangible asset apart from the tangible assets. Two essential theories of knowledge management, which are knowledge-based view of firms and resourced-based view of organizations, will be illustrated to the students as a fundamental organizational strategy. Some of the case studies / best practices of the multi-national companies will be examined and analyzed from the knowledge management theories and perspectives. Both tacit and explicit dimensions of knowledge will be revealed and Nonaka’s SECI model (socialization, externalization, combination and internalization) will be considered during the lecture.
