Description

For knowledge management to be successful, the corporate culture needs to be adapted to encourage the creation, sharing, and distribution of knowledge within the organization. Knowledge Organizations: What Every Manager Should Know provides insight into how organizations can best accomplish this goal. Liebowitz and Beckman provide the information companies need for evaluating and planning the steps and processes that will transform their existing organization infrastructure into a "knowledge-based" organization. This easy-to-read guide includes many vignettes, examples, and short cases of organizations involved in knowledge management.

Reviews

"Success in the marketplace is increasingly linked to an organization's ability to manage and leverage its intellectual capital -- the intangible and often invisible assets such as knowledge and competence of people, intellectual property, and information systems that don't show up directly on the bottom line but are at least as valuable as financial assets. Successful companies of the 21st century will be those who do the best jobs of capturing, storing, and leveraging what their employees know."
