Introduction of Stefan de Bruijn
- Hi everybody,
My name is Stefan de Bruijn and I'm studying Business Administration,
with a strong focus on information and knowledge management, in
Groningen, The Netherlands. I am in the final phase of the study,
which consist of a research into the field of Knowledge Management.
At the moment I am staying in South Africa, where I am conducting
this research in a Knowledge Intensive Organization. The aim of this
investigation is to find a way to bridge the strategic units (read:
silo's) in the company by the use of Organizational Communities.
I am very interested in the different kind of Communities and their
possible functions, as well in the relations between organizational
elements (like culture, structure, systems etc.) and communities and
the relations between members and the community itself (like
leadership, benefits for memebers, etc).
So, After being a lurker for a two weeks I'm going to join the
conversations on this Community of Interest. I don't have consultancy
experience (yet), so I hope my academic point of view will be useful
to the members of this Community.
