Be able to develop an understanding of how knowledge is developed and changed and have an understanding of how organisations can work with knowledge generating processes

Be able to facilitate knowledge development processes in organisations and in society
Knowledge is increasingly being highlighted as an important factor of production. We talk about knowledge enterprises, knowledge management and knowledge economy. In a knowledge-sociological perspective knowledge is seen as something that is socially created and developed. This perspective differs from a more technological perspective on knowledge and information. Furthermore, the course will look at how the principles of knowledge can form the basis for understanding the knowledge economy and knowledge-based companies and organisations.
