Knowledge sharing in organizational structures. (English) Zbl 1249.68242
Summary: This paper shows the possibilities of the theory of concept analysis that can help to understand organizational structures based on solid mathematical foundations. This theory is extended by the concept of knowledge sharing and diversity that allows to evaluate an organizational structure. An alternative approach based on the hierarchical methods of cluster analysis is employed for the purposes of comparison.
