Knowledge Management in Theory and Practice
As knowledge management becomes embedded within organizations it becomes more important for students to understand its principles and applications. In this textbook, Dr. Kimiz Dalkir provides a comprehensive overview of the field on knowledge management with an emphasis on translating theory into practice. Working from a multidisciplinary perspective, Dr. Dalkir weaves key concepts, tools, and techniques from sociology, cognitive science, content management, knowledge engineering, cybernetics, organizational behaviour, change management, and information science into a three-level approach to understand Knowledge Management from the individual, community, and organization levels. Using everyday language and clear illustrations, Dr. Dalkir integrates theory and practice in a highly accessible manner to provide students with a comprehensive and practical knowledge management skill set.
