Business Intelligence and Knowledge Management


Information Systems (IS) have often been the mechanism by which Knowledge Transfer (KT) has beenaccomplished within organizations. However, in the case of Business Intelligence (BI) it is also often the source or theknowledge required to be transferred. While the IS profession has effectively studied explicit knowledge, the conversion oftacit to explicit knowledge (Champika et al. 2009; Parent et al. 2007; Swee 2002) or knowledge creation (Nambisan et al.1999; Nonaka 1994) a gap remains in regards to knowledge adoption and application of transferred tacit knowledge. Thispaper will contribute a design theory to support future research for KT in BI.
