Title: Knowledge brokering in the digital age: The case of an agricultural innovation system
Abstract: This dissertation uses a single case study to understand the phenomenon of knowledge creation and sharing within the agricultural innovation system of Ghana. Knowledge creation and sharing are components of knowledge management (KM), a term being used to describe the ability of any system to optimize the use of knowledge (Teece et al., 1997; Takeishi, 2001). Unfortunately due to the issue of system boundaries, most knowledge management processes are faced with knowledge barriers, resulting in knowledge gaps between knowledge creation and use. In the event of knowledge barriers, new institutions may come into existence to try and lower these barriers (Attewell, 1992), and the new information and communication technologies (ICTs) could also act as enablers through coordination and collaboration to bridge knowledge barriers.
