2009 (English)In: Knowledge Management Strategies for Business Development / [ed] M. Russ, Hershey PA.: Business Science Reference (IGI Global). , 2009, 1, 277-308 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
The alignment of business and knowledge strategies necessarily includes the individual and the organizational perspectives. A major problem in this context is to reconcile these perspectives into a common framework for alignment. To this end, an intermediate level is introduced – the activity domain. The activity domain is a canonical structure comprising all kinds of organizational units, irrespective of size and organizational level. The organization is regarded as a constellation of activity domains, each having a capability to produce an outcome that the organization needs in order to fulfill its goals. Alignment is defined as the management of dependencies between capabilities so that these capabilities fit the business’s strategic intentions. As a consequence, business and knowledge strategies can be linked to the same target – the activity domain. Practical guidelines and alignment targets for these strategies are suggested.
