This week I dove into learning about Ikujiro Nonaka; he is a leading scholar on organizational management and argues that knowledge creation is the basis for organizational leadership. Ankara states a paradigm for managing organizational knowledge that a central theme is a continuous dialogue between tacit and explicit knowledge. This new knowledge is developed by individuals, and organizations play a critical role in articulating and amplifying that knowledge.
I also deeply enjoyed this video by Harvard Business Review (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp-cjRhWoV0). Hirotaka Takeuchi and Ikujiro Nonaka authored a paper called “the wise leader”. They pose the question that being a wise leader is do you have a morale purpose?
They recommend leaders to be idealistic pragmatist. Stretching your morale purpose and reaching for the impossible.
Nakaka discusses the concept of Pronesis
The most practical wisdom phro-ne-sis “the habit of making the right decisions and taking the right actions in contact and relentless pursuit of excellence for the common good”.
The dynamic theory of organizational knowledge creation. Also, and interesting chart…and how it still applies in a technology based industry.
