Last modified: 2013-06-25


This paper endeavours to define the migration of a knowledge item through the three different consecutively life cycles of technology, product development and that of the enterprise. To further illustrate the migration route, four distinct, yet related examples will be investigated and the results discussed.

These examples are chosen such that it defines the beginning and end of each life cycle as well as the cross-over points between the different domains of technology, product and enterprise.

Finally some deductions will be made with regards to the potential application of the knowledge migration model in the search for knowledge frameworks that enable true concurrency while still maintain control of the technical risk profile.
