Course contents:
il corso Ŕ mutuato dal cod. 91053-ENG KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT (WITH SEMINAR ACTIVITIES) In the age of the knowledge economy, knowledge and information are the main commodities, knowledge workers are the most prized labor, and knowledge also serves as a tool, or base, for further innovation and growth. Whereas the phrase was coined by Peter Drucker in 1969 (as a chapter title in his seminal book, titled ?The Age of Discontinuity; Guidelines to Our Changing Society?), we came to associated this notion mostly with the Internet age, of the 1990s and on. Offering a global and sociological perspective, we shall review the phenomenal rates of worldwide expansion of innovation and entrepreneurship, comparing among different nations, different sectors, and different historic eras. We shall interpret such trends by considering the changing social definitions of knowledge and information, the institutions that produce them (education, science, industry), and the relationship (through innovation and entrepreneurship) to the marketplace. Particular attention will be paid to the systemic features of knowledge and information: the components of national systems of innovation (for example, investment profile and the Triple Helix of industry-university-government), the policy to produce, control and navigate knowledge (for example, the regulatory regime) and the impact of social relations (for example, through social networks). By combining an analysis of empirical data and of case studies with the reading of review articles and policy documents, class discussions will touch upon current debates on such issues as globalization, policy-making, and development strategies.
