  MS3020 Knowledge Management Course Handout (8)
Knowledge activist is similar to the concept of "boundary spanner" who plays the role of a scout in anticipating events taking place outside his/her unit, obtaining information outside the boundary and feeding back information to his/her unit.
Secondly, the catalysing function of the knowledge activist is to facilitate the establishment of an enabling context for knowledge creation.

 Knowledge Emergence: Social, Technical, and Evolutionary Dimensions of Knowledge Creation Review and price
There are four modes of knowledge creation, depending on whether there is low care (individuals are left to their own; employees therefore exchange explicit knowledge) or high care (individuals are supported by a strong social network; tacit knowledge is shared) and whether there is creation of individual or organizational knowledge.
Cross-border knowledge creation within multinational companies involves IT platforms, identification of centers of excellence, customer/partner alliances, links with expert organization/universities/thinktanks, and a mix of short-, medium- and long-term movements of people across borders.
Challenges can arise here in enabling knowledge transfers between cultures with differing levels of egalitarian work cultures, and in appointment of managers in foreign branches depending on variations in management style.

I think it is better to put them together under a chapter title of "Knowledge Management Strategy" so that the framework of choices in KM would be more clear.

Despite very successful projects such as the Public Knowledge Project at the University of British Columbia, much work remains to be done to overcome the public perception that the millions of dollars invested in the social and human sciences do not sufficiently benefit the public.
