Nineteen papers examine the importance of knowledge transfer activities between universities and other stakeholders, link knowledge management as a field of education to innovative learning, and assess the impact of applying knowledge management on the innovation of an organization. The contributors propose a model of creativity, invention, and innovation for entrepreneurial engineers, an education-based categorization of vocational workers, and wikis as a tool for collaborative product design. Other topics include the knowledge-centric capabilities of Fundamo financial services, knowledge management performance metrics, innovation policies in the Israeli higher education system, and tools for communities of practice.

The work is intended for educators, professionals, researchers, and upper-level undergraduate students in the field of innovation in knowledge management. Organized into three sections, the volume divides the field of knowledge management and innovation into three areas—education, business, and technology. Well-researched and documented, these case-studies, research-reports, and theoretical narratives come together to assist those interested in using knowledge management in new and innovative ways, whether seasoned users or novices to the field.
