Topic: “Boundary Management: Organisational Boundaries & KM”

Dr Tim Kannegieter’s research has significant implications for knowledge management, and he will argue that it may be used as an underpinning or grand theory, drawing together and explaining the relationship between the multitude of KM approaches.

Dr Kannegieter will be giving a presentation on the subject of organisational boundaries, drawing on the work of his doctoral thesis. 

Boundaries mediate almost every aspect of organizational life and yet they are poorly understood. As a result, when it is recognized that an organizational boundary is “dysfunctional” there is little recourse to theoretical models on which to base remediating action – i.e. boundary management. 

Using evidence gathered from his study of the New Zealand Army training group, Dr Kannegieter has developed a model of organizational boundaries, which are conceptualised through a basic social process, called boundary weaving, which combines elements of both structure and of social process.
