Form Follows Function: Management and Governance of Knowledge Networks

By Heather Creech on December 7, 2006
This paper is an overview of the management and governance of formal knowledge networks. It approaches the topic from a relationships management framework—offering suggestions on creating, organizing, formalizing and institutionalizing network relationships over time. One of the key lessons learned by IISD has been to focus on network work during a scoping phase of a network which would end with the development of network governance agreements which reflect how the network actually works. Form follows function.
