This model is an extended version of the matching problem including the mate search problem, which is the generalization of a traditional optimization problem. The matching problem is extended to a form of asymmetric two-sided matching problem.
In adaptation to a changing environment, innovation is essential for continuing existence of an organization. Of the many approaches available for research on innovation, in the present study, it is performed taking the perspective of knowledge management. The necessary conditions for generation of innovation are considered to be a continuous cycle of organizational knowledge creation, development, and decay that repeats, progresses, and advances, thus thought of as sustained metabolism and dynamic changes in organizational knowledge. With this premise, we represent the organizational knowledge dynamics from two perspectives. One is a micro perspective focused on the organization members who bear the knowledge, on the dialog between the organization members, and on formalization of the knowledge transmission and creation process as an operational model. The other perspective is a macro perspective capturing the results of the model implementation, focused on temporal change in dominant knowledge in the organization, and expressing the dynamics of organizational knowledge. Namely, in this study, the central point of discussion is organizational knowledge creation, here considered and modeled with basic recognition of the important role of dialog between organization members, a role comprising the two phases of knowledge creation at the individual level and diffusion of the created knowledge. Exploratory investigation by simulation on factors that affect organizational knowledge creation shows that a tradeoff exists between knowledge creation at the individual level and diffusion of the created knowledge, and that skillful maintenance of the balance between them is a key task in knowledge management.
