Knowledge and Innovativeness pp.87-92
Helena Santos Rodrigues, Pedro Figueroa Dorrego and Carlos Fernandez-Jardon

Abstract: This paper is a first approach proposing that the successful innovative capacity – innovativeness – is dependent on the knowledge creation capacity of the firm by reinforce or transform knowledge. And that the capacity to adopt innovations (from the outside) implies a lighter process of knowledge creation than in the case of innovation generation, reason why, the adoption needs reinforcement of the prevailing (old, existing) knowledge and the generation of innovations a knowledge transformation. The knowledge companies support there advantage in knowledge assets – the intellectual capital – so Human, Organizational and Social capitals independently, or through interrelations, are determinant in the knowledge creation process (reinforcing or transforming knowledge) to influence the organizational capacity to successfully adopt or generate innovations. This is a Theoretical approach need to be tested and validated.

Keywords: Knowledge Creation, Intellectual Capital, Innovativeness, Innovative Capability

The Knowledge Acquisition Techniques: A Combinatory Algorithm pp.93-98
Abbas Afrazeh and Mehdi Gili.

Abstract: Knowledge in organizations today is considered as one of the most important assets which are possessed by the organization. The main part of this knowledge is the knowledge which causes the organization meets its objectives. So it is necessary for the organization to have methods and systems for acquiring required knowledge. In this paper while reviewing the knowledge acquisition techniques and their requirements, a combinatory algorithm for knowledge acquisition will be introduced. The main characteristic of this algorithm is the combination of introduced techniques and the use of their efficiencies. In designing the algorithm, it is also tried while preparing better situations for stating explicit knowledge and capturing tacit knowledge, the requirements that are needed to fulfill the knowledge acquisition process also be considered.

Keywords: Combinatory Algorithm, Knowledge Acquisition Techniques, Knowledge Management, Intelligent Systems, Domain Expert, Knowledge Engineer, Knowledge Acquisition Requirements
