The ability to manage kwledge has become increasingly important in today's kwledge ecomy. Kwledge is considered a valuable commodity, embedded in products and in the tacit kwledge of highly mobile individual employees. Kwledge management (KM) represents a deliberate and systematic approach to cultivating and sharing an organization's kwledge base. It is a highly multidisciplinary field that encompasses both information techlogy and intellectual capital. This textbook and professional reference offers a comprehensive overview of the field of KM, providing both a substantive theoretical grounding and a pragmatic approach to applying key concepts. Drawing on ideas, tools, and techniques from such disciplines as sociology, cognitive science, organizational behavior, and information science, the text describes KM theory and practice at the individual, community, and organizational levels. It offers illuminating case studies and vignettes from companies including IBM, Xerox, British Telecommunications, JP Morgan Chase, and Nokia. This second edition has been updated and revised throughout. New material has been added on the information and library science perspectives, taxomies and kwledge classification, the media richness of the kwledge-sharing channel, e-learning, social networking in KM contexts, strategy tools, results-based outcome assessments, kwledge continuity and organizational learning models, KM job descriptions, copyleft and Creative Commons, and other topics. New case studies and vignettes have been added; and the references and glossary have been updated and expanded.
