Longitudinal knowledge strategising in a long-term healthcare organisation
by Nick Bontis, Alexander Serenko
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 47, No. 1/2/3, 2009

Abstract: Long-term healthcare organisations significantly benefit from Knowledge Management (KM). However, the extant literature has little empirical support for this statement. Using the KM instrument developed by Bontis and Fitz-enz (2002), this paper extends prior studies by evaluating behaviours within a not-for-profit context over several years. As such, it tests a comprehensive causal model that illustrates the inputs and outputs of effective KM. Longitudinal data was collected during three temporal periods which provides unique insight related to the optimal strength of each causal link over time. These results also broaden the initial findings developed by Bontis and Fitz-enz.
