"Knowledge ecology" is an interdisciplinary field of management theory and practice, focused on the relational and social aspects of knowledge creation and utilization. Its primary study and domain of action is the design and support of self-organizing knowledge ecosystems, providing the infrastructure in which information, ideas, and inspiration can travel freely to cross-fertilize and feed on each other.
Discoveries in knowledge ecology are triggered by the confluence and cross-impact of several disciplines. What's
needed is researchers and practitioners in those fields, dedicating mindshare to venture outward from within their discipline and look for the larger cross-disciplinary patterns that can make a difference for business and other communities struggling with complex problems.
Many of those problems are linked with the inadequacy of tools and methods for knowledge creation and collaborative meaning making. Focused inter-disciplinary action-research addressing the current epistemologic crisis, will open the possibility to unprecedented breakthroughs in organizational performance, business and social value.
Community Intelligence Labs is committed to create and support projects and ventures in which that possibility will turn into action and reality.
