The aim of this book is to develop a specific vision of knowledge practices in firms, by broadening the existing understanding of what people know and do in organizations. This is done in order to arrive at a reasonable understanding of the mechanisms that drive the formation, accumulation, and circulation of knowledge within organizations. To help contextualize this vision and its specific nuances, this chapter reviews the different schools of thought in the new approaches to knowledge in firms. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   knowledge practices, firms, organizations
