Description

Knowledge management professionals are consistently presented with the challenges of socio-technical initiatives when it comes to enhancing, sharing, and utilizing knowledge and information in corporate, scholarly, and professional applications.

Socio-Technical Knowledge Management: Studies and Initiatives connects knowledge management theory to knowledge management practice, allowing the empirical research presented to resolve challenges. This book portrays knowledge management issues approached in a holistic and systematic manner. This provides a better understanding of the benefits and limitations of various socio-technical knowledge management initiatives, especially in the realm of social-oriented knowledge culture, communities, initiatives and rewards, measurement, technology-oriented knowledge repositories, modeling, rating, alerting, and discovery systems.
