Description & Coverage
Description:

Due to the recent advances in computers and technology as a whole, Knowledge Management has taken on a whole new importance. In our society we need KM to ensure that we apply knowledge correctly to differing situations and effectively use that information at the correct times.

Global Aspects and Cultural Perspectives on Knowledge Management: Emerging Dimensions presents new technologies, approaches, issues, solutions, and cases that can help an organization implement a knowledge management (KM) initiative or provide a knowledge base for the practitioner/academic researcher. This book presents the issues that drive the technologies, processes, methodologies, techniques, and practices used to implement KM in a variety of ways and in the multi-faceted modern environment that we find ourselves in today.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Building web-based learning communities
  • Case Studies of Knowledge Management and Organizational Memory Systems
  • Cognitive Theories of Knowledge Management and Organizational Memory
  • Constructivist approaches to web-based learning and teaching
  • Decision making in implementing Web-based learning and teaching
  • Enablers and Inhibitors of Knowledge Sharing and Knowledge Transfer Behaviors

Researchers in knowledge management relating to business, the military, and other realms discuss recent innovations in the field. Among them are using agent-based simulation and game theory analysis to study knowledge flow in organizations, a framework for managing the life cycle of knowledge in global organizations, assessing the impact of knowledge transfer mechanisms on supply chain performance, improving organizational competitiveness by capturing tacit knowledge from transient workers, investigating the impact of knowledge management factors on new product development, zooming in on the effect of national culture on knowledge sharing behavior, an experiment of information elaboration in mediated knowledge transfer, and a case study of knowledge management utilization at two Jordanian universities.
