Knowledge Networking for Collaborative Commerce
Li, Eldon Y.
This chapter aims to describe inter-organizational "knowledge networks" and demonstrate how they have ushered in a new paradigm of collaborative business by forging links between internal and external knowledge and information resources. The overall aim is to classify and review various approaches in inter-organizational knowledge networking whose objectives may span a multitude of needs: from "loose" information sharing that may be not connected to financial transactions between the networking organizations, to "tight" knowledge exchanges that are related to commercial transactions and enable the creation of value from leveraging the interchange of knowledge assets.
