More About the Author

Jane McKenzie would describe herself as a pracademic. She's happy with the rigour of research in the academic world and always has an eye to its practical use in improving business practice. She spent half her working life in industry and half at Henley Business School. Currently she is responsible for the Henley KM Forum - a membership 'club' for anyone in large organisations who wants to make better use of organisational knowledgeability. If you had to describe her interests in one sentence it would be "How connections and contradictions affect knowledge work and learning capacity in business." Her blog is called connections and contradictions. You can learn more about the range of her work with Christine van Winkelen by exploring the website of their latest book - Knowledge Works. There's some interesting material on the website which is free to download on the relevant page. Our aim is to make it easier for you to engage in many happy hours of knowledge work and with better results.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Quentin Sellar on 25 Nov 2003
Format: Paperback
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

Format: Paperback
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.
