Unsurprisingly, there has been a great deal of attention on developing ways to manage knowledge more effectively in recent years, primarily through the development of new information and communications technologies (ICTs). However, this emphasis has largely been at the expense of efforts to explore the human dimensions of effective knowledge management (Scarbrough, 1999; Swan, Newell, & Robertson, 2000). Arguably, the overemphasis on technological solutions for managing knowledge within large organisations has contributed to the relatively high failure rate of knowledge management (KM) within many industries and organisations (Ambrosio, 2000; Carter & Scarbrough, 2001; McDermott & O'Dell, 2001).
