Abstract [en]

Intellectual capital and knowledge management is in itself nothing new. The area is however experiencing a revolutionary process aiming to conceptualise the terms into something more tangible and explicit. The ongoing debate and discussion concerning knowledge management in contemporary thinking, retrospective theories and articles provided the basis for the making of this study. A focus has been taken on a multinational manufacturing organisation and the purpose was through a case study to describe and analyse how the organisation acquires, share and retain knowledge, and furthermore, how knowledge can be created within the organisation. The empirical study was based un six interviews. The analysis resulted in the following conclusions. The studied organisation exhibits a structure that in many ways is not compatible with the present organisation. Though a foundation for the knowledge creation exists, concerns about the sharing- and conceptualisation process were found. The essential factor for changes being the management of knowledge.
