Knowledge sharing by organisations in sustainable development projects
Van Der Meer, Rosemary, Torlina, Luba and Mustard, Jamie 2009, Knowledge sharing by organisations in sustainable development projects, in ACIS 2009 : Evolving boundaries and new frontiers: defining the IS discipline : Proceedings of the 20th Australasian Conference on Information Systems, Monash University, Melbourne, Vic., pp. 785-795.
There are an increasing number of organisations seeing the benefits of implementing sustainable development practices within their processes and product design. However, there are a number of barriers that are preventing organisations from taking up this challenge. Some of these barriers could be reduced through the application of better external knowledge sharing. This paper explores the potential for sharing knowledge about sustainable development practices in academic and industry journals. Using content analysis, the types of projects that are discussed and the level of detail provided in the reporting of sustainable development initiatives by organisations are examined to identify what is being communicated and more importantly to identify what is not being shared. The results show that there is a lack of detail in reporting with a focus on reporting only certain types of sustainable development projects that may prevent knowledge sharing from occurring.
