Combining takes place outside of the work system operations, and involves its members as well as "innovation" specialists.


Name1 Combining
Target Outcome Evidence and science based inputs into the learning of stakeholders and actors in work systems
Social actors and roles Actors designing new functions using among others knowledge that has been captured on some content actant.
Trigger or preceding interaction Some real world work system.
Interfaces and services The drafting of models for the future operation of work systems
Inputs and outputs Input: knowledge that has been externalized, for instance about a work system, in a modeling framework, in indicators (e.g. targets for performance), etc.
Stores and tools Various tools for combining, capturing and accessing content: wikis, editors, modelers, ..
Other characteristics
Part of The larger whole in which the work system fulfills a function.
Parts It is one of the components of Knowledge Conversion, besides 1 - Socializing, 2 - Externalizing, 4 - Internalizing for work systems or systems that are embedded in the work system;
Succeeding Interactions The 4 - Internalizing of new designs for a class of work systems, so that new knowledge can be applied for "better, more sustainable outcomes", or that existing knowledge can be applied in new settings.
Alternatives Each system developing "by costly trial and error", without lessons learned from combining (and evaluating options) prior to applying.
Action Realm Primarily Monitoring & Evaluation and the design of Change before it is put into the Operations.
