    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This paper details findings from a study in the University sector which sought to identify the location and processes of knowledge creation necessary for the effective governance. It explored the differences between the stated location of, and systems for, knowledge production and the actual practice occurring within the organisation. Data was collected via observations of key committees and semi-structured interviews with committee members. This data suggests that knowledge creation occurs in the informal relationships between committee members and is located more in the operational activities than within the senior hierarchy. Implications for governance are discussed in terms of effective knowledge management
