This book offers a learning-centered introduction to the field of knowledge management. Each of the three sections (Strategy, Process, Metrics) sets the tone with an opening essay by a well known authority in the field. Several previously unpublished essays that develop the chapter follow each opening piece. This convenient plan makes it possible for time-pressed readers to get the gist of the matter by reading only three or four essays in the area that most concerns them. It also allows readers with a consuming interest in the subject to get all of the details they could possibly desire. Some of the essays are accessible; some are quite heavy going, laden with jargon and dense academic prose that only a specialist could decipher. Thus, getAbstract.com is grateful that the editors have made it so easy for readers to find what they need to know in this well-organized, thorough study of the field of knowledge management.
In this summary, you will learn
- The basic facts of knowledge management from the leaders in the field; and
- Detailed background information designed to teach three key areas: strategy, process and metrics.
