The Knowledge Management Yearbook 2000-2001

By John A. Woods, James Cortada Copyright 2000

    The Knowledge Management Yearbook is the most current and comprehensive resource available for knowledge management professionals; no other source of information so thoroughly surveys the state of the knowledge management discipline and industry and how they impact businesses and other organizations. Featuring both definitive articles and cutting-edge knowledge management techniques and research contributed by authorities, The Knowledge Management Yearbook covers the nature of knowledge and its management, knowledge-based strategies, knowledge management and organizational learning, and knowledge tools, techniques, and processes.

    The reference section includes a set of up-to-date directories detailing on-line knowledge management resources, KM publications and organizations, and notable KM Quotes. The glossary of KM terms is increasingly perceived by the industry as a benchmark by which this evolving discipline is defined. The Knowledge Management Yearbook is an indispensable volume for any professional helping to shape his or her organization's knowledge strategy.

    Part One - The Nature of Knowledge and its Management; Part Two - Knowledge-Based Strategies; Part Three - Knowledge Management and Organization Learning; Part Four - Knowledge Tools, Techniques and Processes; Part Five - Knowledge Reference Materials.

    Some of my favourite articles on knowledge management are in the yearbook and i'm happy to have them all in one bound collection. I recommend the Yearbook as a useful addition to the library of knowledge management practitioners. You can dip into it to find a useful and thought-provoking article on virtually any aspect of knowledge management, as well as pointers to other valuable resources.
