Abstract

The globalized R&D of multinational firms involves an intrinsic risk of cognitive and strategic dispersion. Very often, this problem is analyzed through the difficulties of knowledge diffusion in organizations. Considering this approach insufficient, we propose an approach in terms of situated cognition. Then the multinational firm is defined as an organization that sets up knowledge sharing devices. In addition, knowledge management situations take place depending on the behavior of the actors who seek to solve coordination problems. We show that the devices are instruments of government while the situations are spaces of autonomy and uncertainty. We illustrate our analysis with the comparison of two multinational firms located in France. These two cases illustrate the achievement of dynamic regulation between knowledge management devices and situations.
