Knowledge Integration in Profession-Orientated Work
Jönköping University, Jönköping International Business School, JIBS, Accounting and Finance.
2010 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Different professions often collaborate within profession-orientated organizations in order to accomplish complex and sometimes both time- and life-critical activities. Knowledge is a prerequisiting resource in performing work in such activities. Hence, knowledge is integrated in such work settings, and knowing is a central concept to make sense of the professionals doing and their collaborating actions. We present and analyze two ethnographical case studies. The result of the analysis of the cases shows both differences and similarities within the use of boundary objects, brokers and boundary spanning activities which facilitated the integration of knowledge within the collaboration between different professions. From these results we make some proposals for design of knowledge integration. However, the results of the use of boundary objects, brokers and boundary spanning activities identified in each case have been used to inspire the other case proposing new ways of designing knowledge integration.
