This article is seeking to explore the practical implications of an epistemological
approach to strategy formulation. In doing so it tries to expand the field of knowledge
management and intellectual capital beyond its operational and often inwardly technological
focus to a new theory of the firm. A resource-based perspective is suggested, using
autopoietic epistemology to guide strategy formulation.
