    In 2004, I was engaged by a client to write a knowledge transfer (KT) briefing paper. The paper contains information about knowledge-related: concepts, frameworks and models, challenges, opportunities, guiding principles, and practices. It also presents models of a generic KT process and SHARE (a Sustainable, High-performance, Applied Research Environment).

    Thanks for providing this paper, it is extremely clear in defining and describing Knowledge Transfer. I study learning in community development and environmental education–all of which is really about knowledge transfer as well as application of new concepts, practices, etc. Seems like there is a lot of overlap with env. ed. literature and that the concept goes well beyond the health sector.

    Thank you for your kind words about the paper.

    You are right, many of the concepts are applicable across disciplines and practices.

    As you know, there is a constant stream of new scholarly work being published about knowledge processes. Are you on Twitter? or do you use Delicious? I post citations to newly-published scholarly literature of interest to knowledge workers on Twitter (http://twitter.com/WestPeter) and echo them to Delicious (http://delicious.com/WestPeter).

    I would like to learn more about your work.
