This Paper aims to explore Castells' proposition that the innovation process is being progressively intensified by developments in technological and organizational forms - that knowledge is being applied to the generation of knowledge. The Paper focuses on the emergence and implementation of knowledge management (KM), and its particular application in Ebank. A global approach to KM focussing on intranet technology Proved unsuccessful. In explaining this outcome, the Paper focuses on the constraints posed by the social embeddedness of knowledge as having a crucial effect. In this case, such embeddedness seemed to be linked to the lack of extensive intra-organizational networks and the disparate identities developed by the different business units of the firm. These findings highlight several implications for KM's role in the innovation process.
