You’ll learn the essential elements of a knowledge management program, how to lay the foundation for success, the secrets to obtaining early and ongoing leadership commitment, tips for communication strategies that actually do influence and engage your audience, how to assess and leverage technology appropriately, powerful methods of nurturing a knowledge-sharing culture (including recognizing and rewarding participants), and finally, you’ll read detailed case studies of 10 organizations — among them Microsoft and NASA — that will inspire you as you set your own knowledge management strategy.

KNOWledge SUCCESSion: Sustained Capability Growth Through Strategic Projects

KNOWledge SUCCESSion is the third book from Dr Arthur Shelley, director of Intelligent Answers and the creator and leader of the Organizational Zoo Ambassador Network. KNOWledge SUCCESSion highlights the interdependencies between knowledge flows, leadership, capability development, and sustained performance using strategic projects as the vehicle. All successful medium to large organizations now need to have active management of projects and the ability to develop knowledge and capability to drive innovation and maintain relevance. There are detailed books on how to manage projects, texts of knowledge management, and volumes on innovation and change, but there is no other book that brings all these interdependent aspects of success together within the context of projects.
