Abstract

Knowledge, as power and a resource, has been much more important for both organizations and individuals. Therefore, one of the necessary issues for enterprises is to manage knowledge properly and efficiently. However, individuals may have their natural inertia when facing problems in the utilization of knowledge, which is termed “knowledge inertia”. This study attempts to combine the existing researches systematically from three aspects: first, the connotation of knowledge inertia; second, constructs and measurements of knowledge inertia; and third, relative researches in the era of knowledge inertia. Furthermore, this paper also reviews the relationship between knowledge inertia and individual innovation.
