The volume is targeted at those new to knowledge and learning, and is filled with practical examples and focuses on the most critical issues, featuring seminal contributions from leading authorities including:* Thomas Davenport,* Dorothy Leonard,* John Seely Brown,* Sidney Winter,* W. Chan Kim,* Peter Druckard.The book is organized around the three key steps in managing knowledge: development, retention, and transfer.
