Sample text

From the standpoint of practice and society, research needs to have autonomy for at least two reasons. One is to play its intellectual role of fundamental criticism as defined by Etzioni (1968) and discussed in more detail in Klein and Myers (2007). The other is that research as an institution needs to develop its ideas freely so that it can be a productive contributor to the global marketplace of ideas. Yet, we believe that researchers should also always seriously assess if their research projects have any chance of producing knowledge that could affect practice.

Classical Greek epistemology illustrates the difference by distinguishing episteme, techne, phronesis, and metis (Baumard 1999). Episteme is abstract and general theoretical knowledge, while techne describes the practical knowledge in craft and art covering techniques and artifacts which provide methods and means to accomplish tasks. The practice of developing and applying IT normally takes place in an organizational or inter-organizational context. Phronesis refers to social knowledge required in our everyday interaction with other people.

Klein autonomy, emphasized by Freidson (1988), includes the right to serve as the best experts on affairs related the BoK and to decide about it, to control the education and accreditation of new entrants, and autonomy over the practical aspects of their work (Freidson 1994). Accordingly, professionalization means building ‘exclusionary shelters in the market’ and providing a market monopoly (Freidsonn 1988; Collins 1990; Macdonald 1995). Professionalization as standardization of skills provides companies with one coordination mechanism (Minzberg 1983).
