Knowledge management (KM) is the process of harvesting, processing, and sharing corporate information in order to reap benefits in productivity and profit, and is one of today's hottest topics in information technology. Currently estimated at a healthy $600 million, the knowledge management market is projected to reach a whopping $50 billion over the next five years.

Knowledge management is still in the midst of being clearly defined at many companies. IT professionals and executives know they need it, but don't know how to implement KM as a strategy. This book demystifies the process, taking the reader step-by-step through a proven intranet KM methodology. The book focuses on practical issues in addition to theoretical ones. The authors provide a how-to, cookbook approach to managing online corporate content for maximum impact. They offer practical advice, instruction, and proven techniques on how to leverage knowledge to increase productivity, reduce learning curves, and take the corporation to a higher level of profitability.
