Knowledge Management Book Excerpt:

As knowledge economies become increasingly important around the world, it is essential that organizations are able to transform their knowledge into a competitive advantage. This textbook offers an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge management written specifically for postgraduate students in business and management schools. Knowledge Management presents classic and advanced concepts, models and frameworks using a clear logical structure, which covers building knowledge competence, the knowledge lifecycle, and integration of knowledge management with business decision making. An overall framework illustrates links between chapters and ensures readers can gain a body of actionable knowledge rather than learning isolated, uncontextualized topics. Based on cutting-edge research findings and covering the most advanced IT and IS technologies, this book emphasises the need for knowledge management to span boundaries across organizations, supply chains and partnerships, rather than being limited to individual learning and sharing within businesses. Knowledge Management is international in scope and includes real world case studies and role play scenarios to show how theories are applied in practice, and "think back" and "critique discussion" questions to encourage reflective learning and critical thinking. This indispensable text provides a dynamic picture of the evolution of knowledge management and demonstrates its full potential to enable better business decisions. Accompanying online resources include PowerPoint slides for lecturers and exercise questions for students.

Social Knowledge Management in Action Book Excerpt:

Knowledge management (KM) is about managing the lifecycle of knowledge consisting of creating, storing, sharing and applying knowledge. Two main approaches towards KM are codification and personalization. The first focuses on capturing knowledge using technology and the latter on the process of socializing for sharing and creating knowledge. Social media are becoming very popular as individuals and also organizations learn how to use it. The primary applications of social media in a business context are marketing and recruitment. But there is also a huge potential for knowledge management in these organizations. For example, wikis can be used to collect organizational knowledge and social networking tools, which leads to exchanging new ideas and innovation. The interesting part of social media is that, by using them, one immediately starts to generate content that can be useful for the organization. Hence, they naturally combine the codification and personalisation approaches to KM. This book aims to provide an overview of new and innovative applications of social media and to report challenges that need to be solved. One example is the watering down of knowledge as a result of the use of organizational social media (Von Krogh, 2012).

Enablers of Organisational Learning Knowledge Management and Innovation Book Excerpt:

This book establishes constructivist, interpretivist, and linguistic approaches based on conventions about the nature of qualitative and text data, the author’s influence on text interpretation, and the validity checks used to justify text interpretations. Vast quantities of text and qualitative data in organizations often go unexplored. Text analytics outlined in this book allow readers to understand the process of converting unstructured text data into meaningful data for analysis in order to measure employee opinions, feedback, and reviews through sentiment analysis to support fact-based decision making. The methods involve using NVivo and RapidMiner software to perform lexical analysis, categorization, clustering, pattern recognition, tagging, annotation, memo creation, information extraction, association analysis, and visualization. The methodological approach in the book uses innovation theory as a sensitizing concept to lay the foundation for the analysis of research data, suggesting approaches for empirical exploration of organizational learning, knowledge management, and innovation practices amongst geographically dispersed individuals and team members. Based on data obtained from a private educational organization that has offices dispersed across Asia through focus group discussions and interviews on these topics, the author highlights the need for integrating organizational learning, knowledge management, and innovation to improve organizational performance, exploring perspectives on collective relationships and networks, organizational characteristics and structures, and tacit and overt values which influence such innovation initiatives. In the process, the author puts forward a new theory which is built on three themes: relationship and networks, knowledge sharing mechanisms, and the role of social cognitive schema that facilitate emergent learning, knowledge management, and innovation.

Design and Development of Knowledge Management for Manufacturing Book Excerpt:

This book examines the modules/elements required before implementing knowledge management solutions in typical manufacturing and service industry. The objective is to develop a framework, design and model suitable for all requirements and a strategy to properly implement. Related case studies from organizations are included, with the results provided to use as a solution to problems experienced when implementing knowledge management in the industry. Implementing a knowledge management system can be complex and dynamic, no matter how well planned and developed. Inevitably a degree of organizational inertia is focused on the current state rather than the new. Within an enterprise, personal and group involvement and interests process status and technology landscape can deflect the commitment needed to successfully implement such a system. Cumulative evidence from past research in knowledge management suggests that effective implementation of KM solution in any organization requires a robust designs and models for various critical elements of process, people and technology. Using the techniques provided in this book, readers should be able to design knowledge management strategies, to align objectives of the KM initiatives with their business goals.

Applying Knowledge Management to Build to Order Processes in Manufacturing and Service Companies Book Excerpt:

Knowledge management differs from expert systems as the latter is more attuned to integrating all available sources of data, information and knowledge into a single, unified system of record. Furthermore, the capturing of tacit and explicit knowledge and its use in streamlining business processes differentiates knowledge management systems from expert systems. The purpose of this study is defining the practical, pragmatic and replicable approaches to knowledge management as it relates to the build-to-order and mass customization strategies of manufacturing and services companies in the United States. The overall research question guiding this study is: How is knowledge management being used today to streamline and make more efficient service strategies of manufacturing and services companies? The research is descriptive and empirical in nature because the primary data were collected using the survey method through fact finding technique such as a questionnaire. The results show the integration of increasing role-based knowledge management in the workflow of a company. From this study, a knowledge sharing maturity model is derived, which illustrates how the level and extent of the exploitation of knowledge in build-to-order and quote-to-order strategies have a long-term impact on the financial performance. Based on these findings, a causal relationship emerges from how a company manages its knowledge in the build-to-order and quote-to-order strategy based on these findings, and they align well to a multi-stage maturity model as a result. One of the main objectives of the study is to determine how the customer churn rate can be reduced. By optimizing business processes, companies can improve increase customer satisfaction while reducing the Days Sales Outstanding levels over time.

Understanding Knowledge Management Book Excerpt:

Knowledge management has emerged as a new perspective on organizations. Conceiving of firms as based on their capacity to create, distribute and make use of knowledge, Knowledge Management theory takes an alternative view of the nature of the firm. Understanding Knowledge Management presents an integrated critique of the Knowledge Management theory perspective, aiming to discuss the ontological, epistemological, and political qualities of concepts such as "knowledge" and "management". Drawing on critical and postmodern theory, Understanding Knowledge Management calls for a more elaborated view of the organizational resource called knowledge.

Managing knowledge Book Excerpt:

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: In an economy where the only certainty is uncertainty, the sure source of lasting competitive advantage is knowledge. Peter Drucker (1953) Companies like Microsoft, Netscape, Coca-Cola and Yahoo can be found under the top U.S. companies with the highest market values in 1999. The market value represents the measure of value that the investors and markets associate with the company. However, these companies are not valued for their tangible assets (buildings, inventory, etc.), they are valued for something which cannot be shown on a balance sheet: their intangibles. These include brand recognition, Patents, customer loyalty, innovative business ideas, past achievements, etc. These companies are valued for the knowledge they possess. However, knowledge is of little value, if it cannot be found when needed. Therefore, a successful knowledge management concept is of crucial importance for these companies. The knowledge management market is growing rapidly and it will continue to advance over the next years. Knowledge management is still a relatively young field with new concepts emerging constantly. Most knowledge management initiatives have focused entirely on changes in tools and technologies, such as intranets and Lotus Notes. But knowledge management is more complex: it covers everything the company does to make knowledge available to everyone. The twenty-first century gives companies the tools and connectivity to easily obtain, share, and act on information quickly. Knowledge management uses these possibilities and recent studies showed that companies gained a competitive advantage by implementing it. According to Accenture research, a well implemented knowledge management process can improve employee productivity by an average of 60%. Often, knowledge management is seen as storing documents in a database, thus hoping to enhance knowledge sharing through the implementation of technology. But to successfully apply knowledge management, companies need to implement a process of motivating and inciting people to share information. The old saying Knowledge is power is still popular. The people who are hoarding their knowledge believe that it makes them irreplaceable. However, real power does not come from knowledge kept, but from knowledge shared. People are expected to cooperate, to be open, to participate within the new economy, but resistance can be expected. Obviously, knowledge management is a combination of [...]
