Florian Kragulj works as a re­search and teach­ing assist­ant in the fields of know­ledge-­based man­age­ment and in­form­a­tion sys­tems at the In­sti­tute for In­form­a­tion Busi­ness. His PhD thesis was on the im­pact of ex­pli­cit know­ledge about needs on or­gan­iz­a­tional learn­ing pro­cesses.

He com­pleted a highly re­search-driven and in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary mas­ter pro­gramme in cog­nit­ive science (www.meicog­ and holds a mas­ter's de­gree (with dis­tinc­tion) jointly awar­ded by the Uni­versity of Vi­enna, the Uni­versity of Brat­is­lava, the Uni­versity of Zagreb, the Bud­apest Uni­versity of Tech­no­logy and Eco­nom­ics, and the Uni­versity of Ljubljana. As part of his stud­ies, he had a re­search stay at the Eötvös Loránd Uni­versity Bud­apest. In his trans­dis­cip­lin­ary mas­ter thesis he developed a meth­od­o­lo­gical frame­work for the ab­duct­ive in­fer­ence of ex­pli­cit know­ledge of hu­man needs and fo­cused on the philo­soph­ical roots of this type of know­ledge.

Fur­ther­more, Florian Kragulj gradu­ated at the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness and holds a bach­elor’s de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion with fo­cuses on man­age­ment and or­gan­iz­a­tional be­ha­vior as well as in­form­a­tion busi­ness. He wrote his bach­elor's thesis about the in­ter­de­pend­ency between or­gan­iz­a­tional cul­ture and know­ledge man­age­ment. His work is based on the path-break­ing the­or­ies of Ikujirō Nonaka and Edgar H. Schein and con­cludes with an in­teg­rated model hy­po­thesis on how the cul­ture of an or­gan­iz­a­tion could in­flu­ence its know­ledge cre­at­ing pro­cesses and vice versa.
