Reviews and Testimonials

A great read! This book provides interesting insight into the field of Knowledge Management from a practitioner viewpoint. It is good to find a resource that concentrates on the application of theory and so appeals to a much wider audience. This book will provide a useful reference point for both academics and practitioners in the field. The holistic approach is a valuable perspective and when combined with the international flavor makes the book an excellent choice
