Vol. 7 No. 1 (2011): Beyond the conventional boundaries of knowledge management: navigating the emergent pathways of learning and innovation for international development
This issue of the journal focuses on the connection between systems thinking in knowledge management for development (KM4D)1and systems thinking in innovation management for development (IM4Dev), as both ofthese approaches have been adapted from systems thinking in business innovation andentrepreneurship. Within the KM4Dev community of practice, and in the wider field of knowled ge management, the emphasis is often and logically on knowledge sharing andinteractive learning, within organisations and between organisations, and at networks andsystems levels. Such knowledge sharing and learning should support innovation, growth and development for the benefits of low-income countries.
