Abstract


  • This paper aims to provide evidence for the proposition that the

    Australian Standard creation process parallels a direction of KM research pursued

    by Information Systems (IS) academics in Australia. Two theoretical

    frameworks, one taskbased and one activitybased, are used in this paper

    to amplify the innovative insights of the Australian Standard, providing a more

    substantial theoretical base that is grounded in the practice of integrating production

    (doing) with the conceptual and cognitive work (thinking) that underpins

    that production within a specific work context. We demonstrate that the

    Australian Knowledge Management (KM) Standard, developed by a committee

    of KM professionals and academics with the input from of a wider community

    of knowledge professionals working in diverce Australian organisations,

    has resulted in a representation of KM that is organically aligned with these two theoretical frameworks.
