Knowledge Management in Theory and Practice
Kimiz Dalkir

"Knowledge Management in Theory and Practice is an important and highly valuable book that gives both theoretical and practical insights from broad multidisciplinary perspectives. Kimiz Dalkir displays a deep and eclectic understanding of knowledge and the business reasons and approaches to its management. The book's many references present opportunities for further exploration. Multiple illustrations from practices in well-known organizations provide readers with great understanding. The book should be on every practitioner's bookshelf - and in their heads as well."
- Karl M. Wiig, Chairman, Knowledge Research Institute, Inc.

"Dr. Dalkir has provided a rich foundation in the theory behind knowledge management (KM) and draws in an engaging learner dialogue that demonstrates how theory can be practically engaged in the dynamic environments of KM-based institutions, businesses, and governments. Dalkir is an exemplary author who draws together numerous practical and theoretical frameworks.. Knowledge Management in Theory and Practice contains rich material with which I can effectively teach KM as well as fertile substance for my academic research agenda. I highly recommend this book because it will prove useful to academics as well as practitioners."
- Michael JD Sutton, Assistant Professor, Information Architecture and Knowledge Management, Kent State University

"An excellent addition to the body of KM literature. Comprehensive in scope, this book integrates theory, practice, history, issues, terminology, and a future perspective. A "must-read" for those interested in leveraging knowledge assets to improve organizational productivity and innovation."
- Michael Stankosky, Lead Professor, Knowledge Management, George Washington University

"Kimiz Dalkir's Knowledge Management in Theory and Practice presents a nice overview of knowledge management. Both practitioners and educators should benefit from this informative source."
- Jay Liebowitz, Professor, Department of Information Technology, Johns Hopkins University
