Co-Operative Inquiry as a basis for Evaluation of Knowledge Management Tools

By Clive Savory


This paper highlights the changes needed in the practice of IT evaluation when directed towards IT used to support knowledge management. The paper addresses the need for evaluation to recognise the increased emphasis on IT supporting the work of communities of practice in contrast to simply automating organisational processes.
