This paper describes the use of a meta-theoretical hierarchy model as the basis for building conceptual toolsets for strategically managing knowledge used by designers. The paper uses two examples - cataloguing knowledge management theories, and computerising knowledge management – to demonstrate the scope for using the meta-theoretical hierarchy model for assisting with knowledge management processes in innovative situations.
