Knowledge Innovation and Entrepreneurial Systems
Permanent URI for this community
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have major impacts on many, if not all aspects of our lives – both professional and personal. Work, school, and society have been turned upside down; we have all had to learn to work, study, and socialize in new ways. Knowledge work has played an increasingly important role in enabling remote workers and effective business practices. Increasingly vast amounts of data are being collected, organized, contextualized, stored and disseminated to workers without physical access to workplace resources. New systems to leverage an evolving workplace and workplace practices are being developed a to foster new ways of doing business.
Knowledge Innovation and Entrepreneurial Systems focuses on the evolving nature of work and society. Competitive, political, and cultural pressures are forcing organizations to do more with less and to leverage all they know to succeed. Knowledge, innovation, and entrepreneurial systems are the systems we’re developing to facilitate collaboration, socialization, and work to improve knowledge capture, storage, transfer and flow. The use of knowledge and the systems that support it fosters creativity and innovation while providing the infrastructure of organizational learning and continuous improvement.
Eighteen mini-tracks solicited 94 submissions with 49 accepted for publication. KIES track submissions explore the factors that influence the development, adoption, use, and success of knowledge, innovation, and entrepreneurial systems. These factors include culture, measurement, governance and management, storage and communication technologies, process modeling and development. Some of the papers describe the societal drivers for knowledge systems including an aging work force, a remote work force and its need to distribute knowledge and encourage collaboration in widely dispersed organizations and societies. Other manuscript investigate competitive forces requiring organizations of all types to adapt and change rapidly. Increasingly, these systems rely on systems and associated analytics to support knowledge assets. Still other papers address issues that impact society in the use of these systems in what is now called the “new norm.” These issues include disinformation and forgetting, social identity, social justice, remote socialization, resource allocation, and decision making, including automated, augmented, artificial, and human based decision making. Mini-tracks include:
As always, we are grateful for the significant efforts of our mini-track chairs, submitting authors, reviewers and HICSS administrators who continually seek to build, support and enable this community of scholars and friends. Mahalo! We look forward to seeing you all in person at the next conference. Aloha!
