John Edwards, Antti Lönnqvist

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialScientific


This paper proposes a research agenda for knowledge management research and practice. To do this, it first reviews selected past knowledge management activity, especially that published in KMRP, including descriptions, predictions, initiatives and other research agendas. This merges into a consideration of the current states of knowledge management literature and knowledge management practice, and some issues that need to be taken into account for the future. These are used to synthesise an agenda whose key feature is research on practice, not just research and practice.
