Book Description

Oct 2003
Understanding the Knowledgeable Organization looks at what it means to be a knowledgeable organization' by exploring six key areas that significantly affect an organization's ability to turn knowledge resources into real value and to operate efficiently. Unlike many others, this book combines conceptual understanding with practical application, and shows how the different aspects of the subject relate to one another. The authors use explicit links to other business and management studies subject areas, and present a holistic understanding of the subject area, exploring the wide range of tools and techniques available and showing clearly the interdependencies throughout the subject area.

This book does more to help organisations understand the value of knowledge sharing and understanding than any other text book I've read.
Although obviously an academic text, it is broken down into easily understandable sections which are "illustrated" by case studies.
The vital section of this book is the final chapter where the authors pull everything together.
Jane and Christine obviously share a passion for helping organisations understand exactly how valuable knowledge creation is in today's turbulent economic environment.
This is a must read for all commercial managers who respect the value of knowledge.
Thank you both

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent KM book... 3 Jan 2010
This is an excellent KM book. A well written, well structured book with excellent coverage of KM principles theory, implementation problems and more.

A recommended book for academics and professionals looking to build on understanding, nurture a knowledge driven organisational culture and looking to gain some helpful insights into known issues and approaches to aid.

Looking for a KM book practitioner / intellectual basis? then buy this one.
