Abstract
This paper provides an analytical overview of how science and technology organizations are moving toward knowledge investment strategies in establishing more effective processes and mechanisms for capturing, using and leveraging knowledge. The paper looks at science and technology organizations that are engaging in the implementation of strategic knowledge leveraging initiatives, and focuses on how these organizations are building their knowledge-based enterprises based on collaborative innovation processes. It investigates the role of community dynamics (e.g., communities of practice or communities of interest), and synthesizes how these organizations are involved in the future innovation process. The perspectives on leveraging science and technology knowledge are surveyed, including: defence, communications, oil, health, chemical and electrical sectors. This paper also reports on the imperatives in knowledge innovation (e.g., business intelligence and intellectual property; information management and information technology), and examines the science and technology knowledge-related strategies that are considered to be the most effective in fulfilling future business mandates.
