International Journal of Human Resources Development and Management, 2007, vol. 7, issue 1, 26-36

Abstract: The paper focuses on writing by experts in knowledge-intensive, innovative work. Writing is an important part of expertise. In business life and industry, little attention has been paid to the writing processes employed in innovative expert work. The paper describes an interview study that illustrates attitudes towards writing in knowledge-intensive work. The study locates an application area in which creative writing is often needed, but where little empirical research into writing currently exists: the generation and development of seeds for new innovations and project ideas.
