Abstract:While knowledge co-creation is a main source of innovation in organisations, little is known about the co-creation of knowledge in career settings, particularly in the context of career guidance. This study represents a novel contribution in the consideration of knowledge co-creation in career settings through the exploration of daily routines of a previously underexplored group of professionals. Ten semi-structured interviews with career practitioners employed by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) were conducted and analysed through a socio-material methodological approach. The findings indicate that career knowledge co-creation is an assemblage of information and socialisation practices situated in a set of socio-material contexts. Specifically, these practices are performed in both physical and technological spaces, and are predicated on career practitioners’ interpretation of their employing organisation’s practice-structuring concepts. While technologies are conducive to the information and socialisation practices that constitute career knowledge co-creation, they can also serve as barriers to its success.
