Edited by T. Kanti Srikantaiah and Michael E. D. Koenig
Knowledge Management in Practice: Connections and Context is the third entry in an ambitious, highly regarded KM book series edited by T. Kanti Srikantaiah and Michael E. D. Koenig. Where Knowledge Management for the Information Professional (2000) offered information professionals an introduction to KM and Knowledge Management Lessons Learned (2004) assessed KM applications and innovations, this book looks at how KM can be and is being implemented in organizations today.
The insights of more than 20 experts are featured in 26 chapters, organized in these nine parts:
- The Three-Dimensional Expansion of KM
- Identifying the Knowledge
- KM Strategy
- KM Techniques and Technology
- Knowledge Sharing
- KM Measurement and Assessment
- KM and Project Management
- Knowledge Preservation
- KM in Government
Knowledge Management in Practice is unique in surveying the efforts of KM professionals to extend knowledge beyond their organizations and in providing a framework for understanding user context. The result is a must-read for any professional seeking to connect organizational KM systems with increasingly diverse and geographically dispersed user communities.
