Resumé

This paper discusses productivity in relation to tacit knowledge and domain complexity. The study is based on five very different case studies; three studies are conducted in Den-mark, Mexico, and China in relation to knowledge transfer when relocating manufacturing facilities. Two studies investigate operation and automation of oil and gas production in the North Sea. Semi-structured interviews, surveys, and observations are the main methods used. The paper provides a novel conceptual framework around which manage¬ment may generate discussions about productivity and the need for learning programs when considering changes in the complexity of a domain.
