Abstract

This paper explores the value of network visualisations for presenting complex knowledge assets to executive decision-makers in order to develop culturally relevant insights for programme development. The value is first addressed with an analysis of network visualisation process called 'Ostinato', an operational context in relation to cognitive fit as a theoretical context. Then, value is explored with an analysis using taxonomy of interactive dynamics for visual analytics. Furthermore, evaluating the usability of visualisation is conducted in the context of the Parisian ecosystem, with board members using network visualisations to explore complex multi-layered knowledge about relationships among key executives, companies and financing organisations. All findings support the argument that value of knowledge assets in problem-solving performance depends on both format of the data and nature of the task. Furthermore, the findings support the importance of continual involvement and interaction between data analysts and decision-makers; they highlight the importance of considering knowledge assets as value drivers that can support knowledge-based innovation.
