Mostafa Jafari, Atieh Bourouni, Roozbeh Hesam Amiri

Abstract


Knowledge creation has been widely recognized to be strategically important for organizational learning and innovation. The lack of empirical work in this area has limited our understanding of this important phenomenon. Previous studies have focused on limited aspects of the overall knowledge creation process, such as inter-organizational knowledge transfer, knowledge flows within the firms and the interplay of tacit and explicit knowledge. In developing countries, there is a sense that rich countries have failed to create knowledge that is appropriate to local needs. This study is a comprehensive analysis of the knowledge creation behavior by using general systems theory and HIV/AIDS epidemic which can help us to better understand of this process.
