For the last decade, we have seen a significant contribution of knowledge management to managerial thinking. In theories, knowledge management has contributed not only to fundamental approaches to companies (e.g., knowledge-based view of the firms), but also to other areas such as management of multinational corporations (MNCs) or supply chain management. In practice, knowledge management-related tools have also been used by many companies for their knowledge productivity increases.

However, strategic aspects of knowledge management practices have not been fully investigated or reported. Thus, papers are sought for a special issue, dealing with theoretical development, empirical research and/or case studies.

Subject Coverage
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
  • Knowledge management and innovation strategies
  • Theoretical development of strategic aspects of knowledge management
  • Empirical investigation of recent strategic uses of knowledge management

  • Methodological issues (e.g., how to measure knowledge and innovation)
