KFS (KM) in China:
Methodology

In the field of knowledge focus strategy ('knowledge management') literature, there are many publications dealing with technical information systems or strategies to improve knowledge work among people. However, at the time of creation of this thesis, there was only one book dealing with intercultural issues of knowledge focus strategy (see Holden, 2002) which does not deal with the Chinese culture. On the other hand, there are many publications dealing with the Chinese culture which do not deal explicitly with knowledge focus strategy. The main approach of this thesis is therefore to combine the findings from both areas of business studies and combine them.

After that, several interviews were conducted with Chinese and non-Chinese from which shorter examples of real life situations and two business cases were produced. These practical experiences are then analyzed using the theoretical findings. At the end, the theses will conclude with a number of practical recommendations, companies can implement in their day to day business to improve their knowledge work with Chinese.
