Overview

There are two main approaches to knowledge management (KM), the process-centred approach which treats KM as an interpersonal communication process and the product-centred approach which focuses on the artefacts for knowledge, i.e. the documents, their creation and reuse in corporate computer-based systems. Knowledge Asset Management presents a knowledge asset-centric approach which fuses the previous two approaches together. It provides a conceptual framework to guide managers in the planning and development of the initiative and presents a methodology for organisations to: define and document their knowledge management strategy.- audit and design business processes that enhance and facilitate corporate learning.- facilitate knowledge sharing between people in the organisation.- measure and evaluate the quality and value of the organisation's intellectual capital. The book also introduces a way for developing an intranet-based environment to support: the collection and classification of internal and external information.- reuse of stored knowledge using flexible and customisable knowledge navigators and advanced search mechanisms including keyword and concept-based searching (e.g. visualization of the information space).- collaboration via on-line workspaces. Knowledge Asset Management gives an in-depth look at the technologies and methodologies required for knowledge management. Written by four highly experienced consultants in the field, the books also includes case studies showing how the principles work in practice. "One of the rare books today on Knowledge Management that addresses the leveraging of an organization's intellectual assets by using an integrative and holistic approach. Well worth reading!"
