Strategic Intentions: Principles for Formal Knowledge Networks

By Heather Creech on December 7, 2006
This paper is an overview of formal knowledge networks, a model for networking which IISD has seen as a more structured and outcome-oriented approach than some other models for collaboration. The paper briefly examines the drivers behind the growth of interest and experimentation with networks; the different types of knowledge and their relevance for knowledge networks; the range of collaboration models available for sharing, aggregating and creating knowledge; the formal knowledge network as a separate and distinct approach; the operating principles for formal knowledge networks; and a synopsis of the basic components for formal knowledge networks.
