AbstractTo date OR has no means of modelling, and therefore predicting the behaviour of knowledge in a system. Such knowledge bearing systems are ubiquitous, and include social networking structures (of increasing importance in politics and in marketing) and more conventional organisational structures (such as communities of practice). Taking into account the critical nature of knowledge production and dissemination as strategic issues for firms, this is a serious gap in our capability.
