Knowing as an activity: implications for the film industry and semi-permanent work groups

Knowing as an activity: implications for the film industry and semi-permanent work groups
Knowing as an activity: implications for the film industry and semi-permanent work groups
The central concern of this chapter is to provide a theoretical explanation of the nature of knowing in an industry organized around project-based work, the film industry. In particular, it explains how knowledge of the work process, culture and rules of film production are gained and stored by both individuals and semi-permanent work groups (SPWGs, Blair, 2000) and then contributed for a short time to organizations. This exploration is particularly interesting as the film industry presents a context in which production organizations are temporary entities and there are no permanent organizational structures through which knowledge can be communicated and maintained.

Abstract

The central concern of this chapter is to provide a theoretical explanation of the nature of knowing in an industry organized around project-based work, the film industry. In particular, it explains how knowledge of the work process, culture and rules of film production are gained and stored by both individuals and semi-permanent work groups (SPWGs, Blair, 2000) and then contributed for a short time to organizations. This exploration is particularly interesting as the film industry presents a context in which production organizations are temporary entities and there are no permanent organizational structures through which knowledge can be communicated and maintained.
