Knowledge Dynamics And The Concept Of – ‘Ba’
AbstractThroughout the present paper work we undertake a theoretic approach through the fundamental research method and deduction method regarding the concept of ‘ba’ and the ways it contributes to knowledge creation within an organization. For the paper’s introduction we considered to present a basic review for the concepts of knowledge and knowledge dynamics. Within the content of the paper we present the concept of ‘ba’ mainly from the Japanese authors’ perspective –Nonaka and Konno and we argue the types and characteristics of this seldom debated concept. We approached this subject because we found it challenging to further contribute to building perfection, and we don’t necessarily mean the reality’s perfection. But, maybe the perfect mental projection of ideals and perspectives represents the first step towards accomplishing them. We carefully pondered the discussions upon the concept of ‘ba’ and this led us to elaborate this paperwork, the bottom line of which is to convince that ‘good knowledge’ shelters within an appropriate system/context, and we’ll refer to it as ‘ba’. Studying the specialty literature as well as observing practice, we came to believe that acquisition of good/ valuable knowledge does not help a company but temporary unless that company multiplies the good effects of knowledge. Towards the end, our research leads to the conclusion that organizations must accept ‘ba’ as a tool for “knowledge creation”.
