9780273682981: Knowledge Management: An Integral Approach

As the economy increasingly moves towards a knowledge based economy, the ability to manage knowledge becomes a matter of competitive survival. Whilst current literature addresses the subject only partially, from a human resource, information systems or practitioner perspective, this is the first textbook to bring together and integrate all these dimensions. Knowledge Management: an Integrated Approach is centred around five parts of the knowledge cycle namely discovering knowledge, generating knowledge, evaluating knowledge, sharing knowledge and leveraging knowledge. The blend of theory and practice makes this the ideal resource for students studying knowledge management courses within business, management, information science and computer science degrees at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

From the Back Cover:

As we move towards an increasingly knowledge-based economy, the ability to manage knowledge becomes a matter of competitive survival. Whilst current literature addresses the subject only partially, from a human resource, information systems or practitioner perspective, this is the first textbook to bring together and integrate all these dimensions. Knowledge Management: An Integrated Approach is centred around five parts of the knowledge cycle - discovering knowledge, generating knowledge, evaluating knowledge, sharing knowledge and leveraging knowledge.

The blend of theory and practice makes this the ideal resource for students studying knowledge management courses within business management, information science and computer science degrees at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Key features

  • The first truly integrated approach to knowledge management offers the student the most realistic and complete perspective.
  • Case studies and vignettes from a range of sectors and organisations illustrate the theory in practice.
  • The comprehensive coverage offers an accessible bridge between disciplines for students and practitioners in the fields of human resource management, information systems and strategic management.
  • Chapters on intellectual capital and the philosophy of knowledge demonstrate the breadth of coverage from the evolution of the subject area to the leading edge of contemporary research.
  • Learning outcomes, exercises and questions for further thought stimulate the reader and encourage them to reflect on their learning.

¿This is an excellent book which manages to combine a consideration of the philosophy of knowledge with the practical discussion of what it means to 'manage knowledge' in an organisational context. The book integrates many disparate strands from the literature and in doing so provides a comprehensive and coherent coverage of this emerging area.¿

Professor Sue Newell, Trustee Professor, Department of Management, Bentley College, USA

"Ashok Jashapara offers the tutor and the student alike a tool which goes some way to meeting the needs of the field. The narrative develops around a five-part structure exploiting the generic conceptual view of the area: discovering knowledge, generating knowledge, evaluating knowledge, sharing knowledge and leveraging knowledge with an epilogue to conclude."


"This is certainly a useful and highly recommendable book, which meets the challenges and claims it has presented. The book is textually well produced and clearly written and laid out. A cool blue is used as the text colour for blocking and highlighting. The paperbound edition feels robust. Sections, heading and graphics are effectively used exploiting the purposeful look and feel of mainstream business and management education texts. In fact, this could be a lesson for some of the mainstream information professional publishers: appearance does effect usability and utility."
Dr Stephen A. Roberts, Senior Lecturer, Centre for Information Management T hames Valley University
