Knowledge Innovation Management -Innovation Entrepreneurship Process

  • Dr. Tan Thai Soon


This article looks into the use and application of Knowledge Management
Process (KM Process) in innovation management. This concept was first
introduced in my book (Tan, 2013), by incorporating the four perspectives of
knowledge processes. These were referred to as the “Knowledge 4Cs”:
Knowledge Creation, Knowledge Conversion, Knowledge Communication
and Knowledge Change.

In applying the original four perspectives of knowledge processes in
knowledge innovation management, the adapted process is referred to as an
“Innovation-Entrepreneurship Process” ™ : these include Knowledge
Creation (innovation creation), Knowledge Conversion (innovation
commercialisation), Knowledge Communication (innovation-communication)
and Knowledge Change (innovation-change). The changed process is set out
in figures 2 below.
