Overview

This book outlines a number of different tools for mapping strategic knowledge, and thus making knowledge more accessible. Anne Sigismund Huff and Mark Jenkins have brought leading academics together in this work:

- to provide informed analysis and theory

- to illustrate the contribution of knowledge mapping to central issues in strategy and organization theory

- to consider the contribution of these studies to management practice

- to address practical theoretic and methodological limitations of these tools, including several software tools now available to facilitate mapping.

Each section of the book provides a table which charts the chapters' main contents, key findings and implications for knowledge management. An annotated bibliography is provided at the end of the book as a resource for readers who may wish to become more familiar with relevant and existing literature in this area.

Mapping Strategic Knowledge is relevant to those interested in knowledge management, primarily academics and consultants in the area of strategic management, but also academics in the area of organization theory.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Business scholars from Britain and anglophone North America<-- >with one German outlier<-->demonstrate the range of strategically relevant knowledge that can be approached from a mapping perspective, illustrate the various mapping tools that are now available, and address methodological and theoretic issues raised by efforts to map strategic management knowledge. Mapping such knowledge, they say, can connect dispersed knowledge, simplify complex domains, represent various levels of abstraction, make water visible to fish, facilitate communication within groups, and generate as well as catalogue knowledge.

Anne Huff is Visiting Professor of Strategy and Innovation at the TUM Business School in Munich, Germany, where she is helping organize research on open innovation that crosses traditional organizational boundaries, product-service fusion and leadership systems. She was Founding Director of the Advanced Institute of Management Research (AIM), a UK wide management research initiative with offices based at the London Business School, and continues to be a visiting AIM fellow at LBS. She is also a visiting professor in the Communications Department of the University of Colorado, and had prior appointments at the University of Illinois, and UCLA. She earned a BA from Barnard College (philosophy), as well as an MA (sociology) and Ph D (management) from Northwestern University.

Her research interests focus on sustained innovation and strategic change; both are seen as dynamic processes of interaction among firms and as cognitive processes affected by the interaction of individuals over time.
