Computing alone? A professional association as a forum for knowledge and learning processes

Computing alone? A professional association as a forum for knowledge and learning processes The main objective of this article is to explore how a professional association can aid individuals’ knowledge and learning processes as a part of a local innovation environment (LIE). An association for ICT professionals, called PITKY, is used as an empirical, illustrative case. The results indicate that an association can have many roles in LIEs from the individual point of view, but these benefits are available mainly for the active members of the association. The roles of the association also change over time, emphasising professional associations’ need to reinvent themselves constantly. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Knowledge-Based Development Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

The main objective of this article is to explore how a professional association can aid individuals’ knowledge and learning processes as a part of a local innovation environment (LIE). An association for ICT professionals, called PITKY, is used as an empirical, illustrative case. The results indicate that an association can have many roles in LIEs from the individual point of view, but these benefits are available mainly for the active members of the association. The roles of the association also change over time, emphasising professional associations’ need to reinvent themselves constantly.
