Information Today, Inc. (ITI) announced the publication, in print and ebook editions, of Designing a Successful KM Strategy: A Guide for the Knowledge Management Professional by Stephanie Barnes and Nick Milton.
According to Barnes and Milton, when a firm’s knowledge management (KM) program isn’t aligned with organizational strategy, its success can be no more than a happy accident—if it succeeds at all. In Designing a Successful KM Strategy, the authors have drawn on 20 plus years of professional KM experience to outline a step-by-step approach to crafting a KM strategy that supports an organization’s unique needs and goals. The new book will equip KM pros to:
- Connect KM strategy to business strategy
- Identify the business drivers that KM will support
- Identify the firm’s strategic knowledge areas
- Understand and engage key stakeholders
- Incorporate sound change management principles
- Design pilots that kick-start successful KM rollouts
Stephanie Barnes has more than 20 years of experience in KM and accounting in the high-technology, healthcare, and public accounting sectors. She is currently a knowledge management consultant at Missing Puzzle Piece Consulting. Dr. Nick Milton is director and co-founder of Knoco Ltd. With more than 21 years working in knowledge management, Milton has helped develop KM strategies, implementation programs, and services for a wide range of organizations around the globe.
