Description

The dissertation analyses the problem of organisation knowledge synergy evaluation through a systematic approach. A systematic synergy evaluation is important for organisations if they wish to adjust, change or integrate new knowledge sharing as well as cooperation incentives in order to seek better performance results and increase their potential. The research object is the evaluation of knowledge synergy in organisations between employees. The aim of the dissertation is to develop a set of methods for organisation employee knowledge synergy evaluation, the application of which would enable quantitative evaluation of organisation employee knowledge synergy and its components, and would prepare the ground for reasonable suggestions concerning the improvement of employee knowledge as well as the management of employee links.

The dissertation consists of the introduction, four chapters, general conclusions and annexes.

The first dissertation chapter analyses the importance of knowledge and the problem areas in the knowledge society; reviews the dissemination of knowledge; reveals the preconditions for knowledge synergy formation; formulates the definition of knowledge synergy and the validity of the use of this term. Moreover, the first chapter contains a detailed analysis of scientific sources on the topic of the concept of knowledge synergy. The second chapter part analyses the methodological base of knowledge synergy evaluation; emphasizes knowledge synergy components; and validates the relevance of the development of such a set of methods for knowledge synergy evaluation on the basis of a critical analysis of various sources. The third dissertation chapter describes the prepared set of methods for knowledge synergy evaluation; singles out the types of knowledge synergy with reference to the formation of links in an organisation. The essence of the set of methods is the components that are evaluated quantitatively with the help of graph theory, combinatorics and multicriteria evaluation methods. The fourth chapter includes a principle scheme for the evaluation of knowledge synergy and describes the methods for the application of the set of methods for knowledge synergy evaluation. This chapter also presents the results of experimental application of the set of methods for knowledge synergy evaluation in organisations between employees. The results justify the benefit of the set of methods for knowledge synergy evaluation for the analysis of business processes of an organisation.
