"Repairing Managerial Knowledge-Ability over Distance" by Keith Goodall and John Roberts, Organization Studies (2003), Vol. 24, Issue 7, p. 1153 Abstract: Despite a growing acknowledgement in the literature of the 'socially embedded' character of organizational knowledge, in this article we argue that conceptualizations of knowledge management have remained aloof from the agency that they seek to inform, particularly in relation to managing within physically dispersed organizations. We seek, therefore, to explore the essential link between knowledge and action ('knowledge-ability') through an empirical investigation of the organizational conditions and managerial labour needed to preserve knowledge-ability within a transnational. In order to achieve this, we compare the experiences and practices of three managers located in China, Columbia and Australia as they seek both to communicate knowledge of their local context to the remote centre in order to influence policy and gather knowledge of what is happening remotely in order to coordinate their local action with shifts in corporate thinking. A model of the resources needed in order to limit and repair the damage of distance is generated using this qualitative data. We argue that the labour of repairing knowledge-ability should be understood as an essential aspect of the workings of power relations within the transnational, and involves an intensification of self-disciplinary practices within network forms of organizing.

The 2nd IAIS Reverse Conference Jun 07, 2006 from 09:30 AM to 04:30 PM National University of Ireland, Galway.,
The 2nd IAIS Reverse Conference: Innovation, Agility & Resilience - A Workshop for Researchers, at the J. E. Cairnes Graduate School of Business & Public Policy. National University of Ireland, Galway. June 7, 2006. Most conferences are primarily comprised of research papers delivered to the audience via once-off presentations. Many researchers have called for a different format whereby new ideas for papers can be circulated, debated and formalised, as opposed to the traditional format where only completed pieces of work are presented. This workshop reverses the traditional process by focusing on research paper creation rather than delivery. It follows on from a very successful inaugural IAIS reverse conference held in Ballyvaughan, County Clare in August 2005. The event is sponsored by the IAIS and IFIP8.6.
