    Digital technologies have created an opportunity to bring together knowledge management, leadership, and innovation. Any business that wishes to thrive in today's competitive digital landscape must prioritize knowledge management. Leadership in the digital era is about leveraging digital tools to manage knowledge to attain a strategic advantage effectively. Thus, leadership is an essential and central element for knowledge creation, acquisition, utilization, and integration. As a result, this book will focus on knowledge management, leadership, and innovation, all intertwined but not covered in existing research. 

    The book integrates knowledge management, leadership and innovation into a unified framework in the era of digitisation, exploring the benefits strategic knowledge management can bring to organizations adapting to new digital requirements in a dynamic environment. It presents both theoretical and empirical research to synthesise these distinct disciplines in a cohesive body of work. The resulting model, case studies, and metrics will create a useful framework to be applied to future research and further add to practical and theoretical implications.
