Innovation is about new ideas which emerge from new knowledge. Explicit knowledge is the infrastructure to maintain stability, while tacit knowledge stands for heterogeneity, flexibility and creativity, which leads to innovation. As a starting point, knowledge management, either mining existing knowledge or creating new knowledge, both explicit and tacit, through transfer, translation and transformation process, should be redefined for innovation management. This is especially true for knowledge moving across boundaries and how it affects innovation processes and outcomes because both clarification of new knowledge and the understanding of who its gatekeepers are is critical to foster innovation.
