The boundaries between different types of information work within an organization are blurring, and knowledge management (KM) is now essential to the success of any information-centred organization. It is about sharing: establishing a collaborative ...
environment; getting the right information to the right people at the right time, place and cost; and exploiting intellectual capital to increase revenue and improve efficiency. This uniquely practical book is designed to help managers and information workers make sense of how we acquire, organize and share knowledge. Cutting through the jargon, it aims to provide a shortcut to the KM issues that are usually made to seem so complex. Real examples, case studies, checklists and exercises, drawn from a range of sectors, are offered to illustrate good knowledge sharing behaviours and practice. This title addressed areas, including: accessible knowledge and cultural change; innovation: capturing learning and exploiting knowledge; putting structures and processes in place; relationships with suppliers and customers; a knowledge management strategy and implementation plan; coaching and mentoring to support new skills; and, measurement and evaluation. The KM skills and profiles linked together throughout this book make it essential reading for managers and information workers in a variety of organizations including those in the commercial sector, health, law and education, as well as information professionals in libraries, archives and museums. It will also be of great interest to students researching KM issues.
