The book will focus specifically on knowledge flow (KF) processes occurring within networked communities of professionals (NCP) and the associated virtual community environments (VCE) that foster horizontal dynamics in the management, sharing and development of fresh knowledge. Along this line a further key issue will concern the analysis and evaluation techniques of the impact of Network Technology use on both community KF and NCP performance.
- The proposal of a taxonomy of Network Technology uses to support formal and informal knowledge flows
- Analyses how Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 technology is deeply modifying the dynamics connected to KF and KM
- Discusses dynamics underlying horizontal KF sharing processes within NCP
