I do research on knowledge networks and I`m looking for Knowledge Management approaches, which
focus on knowledge processes as self-organizational (chaotic) patterns. Using the terms of chaos-theory,
organisations have been prescribed as complex and fractal systems (e.g. Warnecke).
From a systemic point of view, knowledge cannot be measured and therefore not be managed. If
knowledge cannot be measured as an object, maybe the knowledge bearers (subjects) can (to some
extend)... and they might be seen as the only value creating elements in a (socio-technical) system.
However, does anyone have suggestions how the method of SNA could contribute to monitor and
evaluate the change of knowledge processes (or the knowledge flows, if you want) within organisations?

me, if interested. Like to join existing expert team as well.
