By Practitioners for Practitioners
Knowledge Management Matters: Words of Wisdom from Leading Practitioners is a collection of works penned by an amazing and diverse group of thought leaders. Each of these trailblazers has generously shared their knowledge with a view to helping you and your organization succeed in the knowledge environment. The tips, tactics, and techniques they suggest are time-tested and proven concepts that will help you achieve your organizational objectives. Their collective works are based on decades of experiences with real-world organizations. This is not a book of untested theories that might work, but rather a compilation of genuine words of wisdom from experienced KM practitioners who know knowledge management.
Knowledge Management Matters starts with a brief overview of the evolution of knowledge management. Building on this historical foundation, we launch a wide-ranging exploration of the domain. Throughout the book are excellent examples of what works, what doesn’t, and some thought-provoking teases about the future. The authors offer great advice on a variety of subjects including storytelling, big data, creativity & innovation, leading communities, knowledge assets, co-creation, catering for a transient workforce and so much more.

Knowledge Management Matters Conversations
We are excited to announce a new series called Knowledge Management Matters Conversations. Stephanie Barnes, who wrote Chapter 4 of Knowledge Management Matters, wisely suggested we should do a video session of her chapter. What a great idea! We sat down together (virtually) and recorded a conversation about Creativity and Innovation, which is first in a series about the book. Here are links to the video and podcast.
