The concept of the emergence of a knowledge integrator node in project teams or internal and external networks of a firm is explored. Aspects of the literature on the knowledge creation process and key actors and their roles and knowledge management in boundary-spanning networks development in multinational companies are presented. A grain trading and exporting case study illustrates the concept of knowledge integrator nodes and organisational learning. The concept of knowledge integrator nodes is again explored in Singapore-based multinational telecommunications companies and expanded to include an investigation into knowledge management roles in internal project teams. Further recommendations for research are included as well as how knowledge integrator nodes (KINs) may have application in 'knowledge-based' industries.
