    Description:

    This paper presents data on technological change that have been made comparable from the Survey of Electronic Commerce and Technology (SECT) for 2000 and 2002. It shows that when comparable data for the 1998 to 2000 and 2000 to 2002 periods (based on the definition and survey universe employed by SECT 2000) are used, the propensity to adopt new technologies in the private sector has remained constant at about 40%. The rate of technology adoption in the public sector remained at four out of five organizations introducing significantly improved technologies (a level about twice as high as that for the private sector). This rate also shows little change from 2000. The paper presents the comparable technological change data, while explaining differences in the wording of the survey questions and universe between the two reference years. Information is provided for private and public sectors, selected employment size groups and sectors of both private and public sectors.

    Description:

    This article presents findings from a 2001 Canadian pilot survey on the use of knowledge management practices by firms. Of the firms surveyed, 9 out of 10 firms reported using at least 1 of the 23 knowledge management practices that were studied. This survey, a world first by a statistical agency, measured the extent to which knowledge management practices were used by Canadian businesses in forestry and logging; chemical manufacturing; transportation equipment manufacturing; machinery, equipment and supply wholesaler-distributors; and management, scientific and technical consulting services. The reasons for and the results of using knowledge management practices, as well as the practices themselves, are examined by firm size and by type of adopter.

    Description:

    Eliminating the "neutral" response in an opinion question not only encourages the respondent to choose a side, it gently persuades respondents to read the question. Learn how we used this technique to our advantage in the Knowledge Management Practices Survey, 2001.

    Description:

    Canadian firms are well aware of the benefits of using knowledge management (KM) practices and most of them incorporate some aspects of KM in their management toolkit. Knowledge sharing, creation, generation and maintenance are perceived as important to a firm's productivity.

    Description:

    When constructing questions for questionnaires, one of the rules of thumb has always been "keep it short and simple." This article is the third in a series of lessons learned during cognitive testing of the pilot Knowledge Management Practices Survey. It studies the responses given to long questions, thick questionnaires and too many response boxes.

  • Articles and reports: 88F0006X2002006
    Description:

    The results of this pilot Knowledge Management Practices Survey indicate that most firms are managing some aspect of their knowledge. At present it appears that firms are more actively managing the transfer and sharing of knowledge within the firm and external knowledge that could directly bear on their markets. Knowledge management practices are seen as important tools in improving firms' competitive advantage and as a manner to unite workers in the goals of firms' strategic objectives. In fact, the majority of reasons found to be most important to the firms show a slant towards internalising knowledge and protecting the knowledge in place. Very few of the practices in use or the reasons or results of using the knowledge management practices indicated a strong willingness on the part of firms to share their knowledge with competitors or between work-sites.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In September 2000, a small international group met to develop a survey on knowledge management. Creating the pilot questionnaire required a cooperative effort on behalf of survey taking experts, knowledge management specialists and policy analysts. Bringing together a preliminary questionnaire that met the basic requirements of a group of dynamic and outspoken experts, each with individual and collective objectives was not a simple task.
