Knowledge communication and translation.

Liyanage, Champika, Elhag, Taha, Ballal, Tabarak and Li, Qiuping (2009) Knowledge communication and translation. Journal of knowledge management, 13 (3) . pp. 118-131. ISSN 1367-3270 [Article]


Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to propose a process model for knowledge transfer in using theories relating knowledge communication and knowledge translation.

Design/methodology/approach – Most of what is put forward in this paper is based on a research project titled "Procurement for innovation and knowledge transfer (ProFIK)". The project is funded by a UK government research council – The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The discussions are mainly grounded on a thorough review of literature accomplished as part of the research project.

Findings – The process model developed in this paper has built upon the theory of knowledge transfer and the theory of communication. Knowledge transfer, per se, is not a mere transfer of knowledge. It involves different stages of knowledge transformation. Depending on the context of knowledge transfer, it can also be influenced by many factors; some positive and some negative. The developed model of knowledge transfer attempts to encapsulate all these issues in order to create a holistic framework.
