Survey of Knowledge Workers
Conducted by: Andrea J. Hester, Ph. D. Student, University of Colorado Denver
The purpose of this survey is to provide data for my dissertation which involves knowledge management with a focus on various technologies. I am looking at the factors which motivate adoption and usage of knowledge management systems with a particular interest in wiki technology-based systems, although usage of all types of technologies is pertinent. I am using Innovation Diffusion Theory as the basis of my model with some additions which I feel are relevant and worth exploring. The results of this research could provide valuable information to organizations seeking to improve knowledge management processes and/or implement technological solutions.
If as part of your work processes you use some type of knowledge management system, such as Discussion Forum or Message Board, Blog, Group Decision Support System, Microsoft SharePoint
, Dynamic Database, Web Management Sys tem or Intranet, or Wiki Technology-Based System, then you can provide valuable information for this research. In return for your time, at the end of the survey you can choose to enter your name in a drawing for a $50 Best Buy Gift Card, as well as receive a report on our findings. (Drawing held Thursday, December 11 – just in time for last minute Christmas shopping!)
If you work for an organization which would be interested in a report curtailed only to the participants of your organization, I would gladly create a special link for you to invite your workers, thus allowing me to provide findings based solely on your organization.
Regardless of how you complete the survey, it is completely anonymous and you are not required to leave your name for submission. The survey consists of 45 questions requiring approximately 15 minutes of your time. Please click the following link to participate in the survey.
