Reviews & Statements

Realizing that, in 1997 I developed one of the first classes that taught Knowledge Management in a Graduate Business program. Since then, I have been researching, consulting and teaching that subject in numerous countries and academic institutions, never having found a text that would completely satisfy my needs....This book is the fruition of our dream.

– Meir Russ, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay, USA

The text is the most comprehensive, innovative and thoughtful recognition of the contemporary stage of research into Knowledge Management (KM) currently available. The content covers a wide range of critically important KM issues which may be considered, adopted and exploited towards the development of business. The uniqueness of the text is a testament of the commitment, expertise and experience of the contributors. This collaboration has yielded a formidable outcome that will be, '..... a source of wisdom and knowledge for future generations'.

– Professor Raymond A Hackney, Chair in Business Systems, Brunel University, UK

Knowledge Management Strategies for Business Development is a fascinating topic for business leaders and c-level executives. The book starts with discussions about knowledge and what it means for business practitioners, moving into discussions about how to manage and audit knowledge, followed by the challenges of organizations to deal with knowledge management. It then moves into providing business leaders and executives concrete strategies on how to deal with such critical challenges. This book is a great resource for business leaders and c-level executives on how to deal with issues related to organizational knowledge in their firms. Moreover, this book is a great resource for enthusiastic managers, such as graduate level management and business students that have business experience, in providing them the tools and guides on proper strategies to knowledge management.

– Yair Levy, Ph.D., Nova Southeastern University

The book will be of assistance to executives and managers who are interested in KM and business strategy and its applicability to their own business requirements. It will also be of interest to advanced undergraduates or postgraduates taking classes in business strategy and KM. Researchers will find the book extremely useful as it consolidates much of what is currently being pursued in KM regarding business strategies. The comprehensive reference list will be particularly helpful in this regard. This is a book I personally enjoyed reading very much.
