Knowledge enables effective action, saving time and resources. Making that knowledge flow in a direction that supports organizational learning is vital for any organization. In a nutshell, this is the realm of knowledge management (KM), a little-understood but critically important discipline. Now, in a cutting-edge THiNKaha® book, #SUCCESSFUL CORPORATE LEARNING tweet Book05: Everything You Need to Know about Knowledge Management in Practice in 140 Characters or Less, KM expert Michael Prevou, together with Mitchell Levy, condenses input from top KM practitioners in a clear, structured, and relevant manner. Cutting to the chase, this timely title helps management leaders understand what KM is and is not, why it is important, how to design a KM strategy, and how to develop an organization’s KM program.
As an army veteran who has been involved in the U.S. Army’s earliest KM efforts and has worked with over a dozen industry clients, Michael is widely recognized as one of the most innovative and experienced KM practitioners nationwide. For this book, he worked with Mitchell, a corporate veteran, and together, they communicate their expertise clearly, in language that any company leader can assimilate. For example, aha #29 in the book states, “KM is not technology driven. Technology is an enabler—it cannot share or make decisions for us.” To cite another succinct nugget, aha #31 reminds us, “Remember, knowledge must move to be valuable. Do your KM systems move it, or just store it?”
Even before release, praise for the title has been generous. John Nelson, Project Manager at Dynamics Research Corporation shares, “This is what we needed—KM presented in non-academic plain English.” Jay Liebowitz of the University of Maryland University College is convinced that the authors have compiled “valuable practical knowledge to get KM off the ground in your organization.”
The author’s unique experiences implementing real KM in action, combined with his background in educational psychology, creates powerful practical expertise for senior management to implement a successful, company-centric KM program. At the very least, this new book will help you share and put knowledge into action in ways that visibly improve individual and organizational performance.
