A Dialogic Perspective on Managing Knowledge Differences: Problem-Solving while Building a Nuclear Power Plant Safety System

Chia-Yu Kou, Sarah Harvey
2021 Organization Studies  
To manage knowledge differences, existing research has documented two sets of practices: traversing and transcending knowledge boundaries.  ...  What research has yet to explore, however, is the dynamics through which traversing or transcending practices emerge in response to a particular problem situation.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to express our thanks to three anonymous reviewers and our editor, Jasper Hotho, for their encouragement, clear guidance, and invaluable suggestions in developing the paper  ...

Perspectives on knowledge integration in cross-functional teams in information systems development

Pascal Dussart, Lise A. van Oortmerssen, Bé Albronda
2021 Team Performance Management  
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to provide insights into cross-functional team (CFT) members' points of view on knowledge integration.  ...  To improve knowledge integration in teams, managers should reduce knowledge boundaries that are the result of organizational structuring and power play between departments.  ...  Longitudinal research could gauge the differences in knowledge integration and knowledge boundaries between short-term and more long-term cross-functional ISD teams.  ...
