Internet-Based Organizational Memory and Knowledge Management provides a multidisciplinary view of the wide range of ideas on innovative Internet information systems as they related to organizational memory and knowledge. Using the Internet as the primary architectural base, this book presents results and challenges of Internet-based knowledge management systems.
In creating an academic discipline, there has to be a widely accepted theoretical construct, arrived at by undergoing scholarly scientific investigation and accompanying rigor. This construct becomes the basis for an academic curriculum, and proven methodologies for practice. Thus, the chapters in this book bridge theory and practice, providing guiding principles to those embarking on or evaluating the merits of a KM program.
As a methodology itself for undertaking the development of a body of knowledge, a KM Research Map was developed to guide scholars, researchers, and practitioners. This book presents this map, and showcases cutting-edge scholarship already performed in this nascent field by including the dissertation results of eleven KM scholar/practitioners.
Knowledge Management, Organizational Memory and Transfer Behavior: Global Approaches and Advancements is a comprehensive, international collection of first-rate research into the field of knowledge management. This book captures an in-depth knowledge base for academia and industry on the most current and useful concepts, applications, and processes relevant to the successful management of knowledge assets.
The underlying theme of the book is to explain how an organization can identify, measure, manage, leverage and act upon its collective intelligence towards the pursuit of sustainable innovation. The book is divided into three main parts which first establish a foundation of literature, then examine various measurement approaches and finally conclude with a variety of applications.
"This collection of papers from the conference is special for its seminal research, strategic visions, and thought-provoking discussions. Make sure this book has a place in your library!"
Dr. Jac Fitz-enz, Founder and Chairman, Saratoga Institute
Central to the study of knowledge management is the notion that retaining existing practices and experiences and applying them to new scenarios improves organizational and individual performance. While a strong foundation has been constructed by over two decades of research in this discipline, there are still significant opportunities for us to advance our understanding of knowledge creation, use, and transfer.
Conceptual Models and Outcomes of Advancing Knowledge Management: New Technologies discusses theory and practice in the design of knowledge management systems, facilitation of knowledge sharing, and creation of practices that encourage organizational learning. With a focus on all aspects of knowledge management research, this book is a valuable resource for organizations aiming to improve performance as well as researchers seeking to develop conceptual models and frameworks for further inquiry.
