The Philosophers Stone - About Knowledge and Leadership
Time-space Contexts, Knowledge and Management
Our lives take place within specific time-space contexts, and in everyday life these contexts are taken as self-evident. Simultaneously, we have accepted the classical idea of fixed, permanent and acontextual truths. This paper argues that people use and are aware of various time-space contexts, and have implicitly created knowledge and approaches that work within them. The paper further argues that explicit consideration of time-space contexts should influence the
tools, techniques and methods we use when making sense of each situation, and determining the management interventions we make.
