dc.description.abstractCreation of knowledge and the management thereof is of great importance if industry players are to survive in competitive environments. The Socialisation-ExternalisationCombination-Internalisation (SECI) model of Nonaka is one theoretical model of how tacit and explicit knowledge is processed within organisations. Research on knowledge creation in Construction Management (CM) has made reference to the SECI model, yet its applicability is not without criticism. Through a structured review of journals based in the CM domain the application of the SECI model to construction enterprises, as well its acceptability is explored. Drawing from this review, arguments for and against the adoption of the model are presented and contextualised with critique from mainstream management research. The review thus provides the basis for judging the applicability and merits of the SECI model in Knowledge management research; and more specifically reference to knowledge dealing with CM related issues and how the SECI model can adequately be employed here.en_US
