Description

Organizations today face major disruptions in technology, consumer preferences, and in the makeup of their workforce. Digital transformations are a necessity, as well as the ability to keep up with these disruptions and changes. As more organizations go through digital transformations brought on by remote working, changes in strategy, and technological advances, the need for digital collaboration as a key competency becomes increasingly important. With organizations being redefined, new capabilities and best practices will need to emerge to ensure businesses last and can create long term impact.

Implementing a knowledge management (KM) strategy is one of the ways organizations look to improve organizational effectiveness, innovation, and adapt to changing circumstances. An effective KM strategy is how an organization can identify, capture, create, share, and use knowledge that exists within the organization and can leverage these knowledge activities to bring about organizational learning, and therefore improved performance. An organization’s ability to learn from its employees’ collective experiences, make better decisions, and innovate based on its own learning will be crucial to organizations’ thriving in a rapidly changing world. This will be discussed within the contents of this book.

This book will also take a close look at organizational culture, as workers look for greater satisfaction and alignment with their personal values in current times. Organizations with strong cultures are more likely to adapt to challenges and transform their business to the emerging needs of the market. Areas within organizational culture are a key component and can influence the KM strategy by introducing norms and behaviours that support knowledge sharing, collaboration, and communication.

This edited collection will explore how knowledge management and organizational culture play a role in these transformations.
