Knowledge management is an emerging, evolving field at the confluence of several management disciplines. A critical function for all organizations is to make rapid decisions. To do this effectively decision makers require relevant data and information. Yet, most decision makers are floundering with information overload, time compression and pressures to make critical decisions that have far-reaching consequences to their organization.Knowledge-Based Enterprise: Theories and Fundamentals provides a comprehensive coverage of all areas (people, process, and technology) necessary to become a knowledge-based enterprise. The book presents several frameworks that not only facilitate the implementation of a KM initiative but its on-going management so that pertinent knowledge and information are always available to the decision maker, and that the organization may always enjoy a sustainable competitive advantage.
