Organizing newspapers as knowledge-intensive firms - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Pühringer, Karin (2005). Organizing newspapers as knowledge-intensive firms. Working Paper of IPMZ 02, University of Zurich.

Abstract

Today's working society is heavily bounded by knowledge and communication intense business services. Therefore, knowledge-based resources have become paramount in the quest for competitiveness comparative to other resources such as capital or natural resources (Storey, 2005), or you might even argue knowledge-based resources have replaced them. Knowledge-Intensive Firms (KIFs) gain competitive advantage from the human and social capital which make up their unique trading assets (Swart and Kinnie, 2003, p. 60). The characteristics asserted for knowledge-intensive firms in general are evidently assignable to newspaper companies or the newsroom itself.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
