Knowledge Innovation and Entrepreneurial Systems

Permanent URI for this community

The knowledge-based view emphasizes the importance of knowledge for organizations to retain their competitive advantage. The success of knowledge sharing practices is vital because it results in shared intellectual capital. Knowledge sharing success lies in the employees’ capability to share they know and how they know it. Knowledge systems support sharing practices through their ability to identify, capture, organize, store and disseminate ideas, practices and processes that can impact organizational performance. To the extent such systems can be innovative in their approach to managing organizational resources enables strategies that can foster competitive advantage. Entrepreneurial practices pursue and embed innovation. The Knowledge Innovation and Entrepreneurial Systems track presents research at the intersection of innovative knowledge ideas and practices that enable positive change in organizations. Manuscripts explore systems developed to foster creativity and innovation while facilitating collaboration via knowledge capture, storage and transfer. Evolving infrastructures such as the Internet of Things, the Location of Things and the sharing economy are creating invaluable information assets that, if properly utilized, can deliver positive impacts to organizational performance.

Twelve mini-tracks attracted paper submissions for the KIES research track. The track chairs, mini-track chairs and HICSS administrators seek to preserve and grow the strong community of scholars. We appreciate the efforts of all our colleagues who submitted and/or reviewed papers – as always, the ideas, insights and comments shared through your work are invaluable. Thank you!
