The KVC Handbook Version 4.0 contains slides, text, and other KVC discussion and reference materials. It explains in detail the transformation of data into intelligence and strategic value. It's ideal for training both producers and users of knowledge and intelligence, for diagnostic and corrective interventions, and for reference. The Handbook embodies an innovative high-value approach to conveying practical business information. It contains a minimum of business jargon, and key points are headlined in bullet-points. Dozens of full-color illustrations make it easy to understand and apply. It's ideal for anyone whose time, attention, and tolerance for opaque consult-speak are stretched thin. The KVC Handbook is not a conventional business book. That's not what our clients wanted, and not what we intended. So then, what is it? It's a primer on the applied economics of information. It's a user's manual for both producers and users of organizational intelligence and knowledge. It's a how-to guidebook to data-based organizational decision making. It's a trouble-shooting tool for optimizing the design and operation of knowledge-based business processes. It's an idea generation device for using information to compete more effectively. You can read through the Handbook in one or two sittings and soon be ready to apply it to solving your challenges. The Handbook includes the KVC Scorecard, a self-assessment tool you can use to troubleshoot and increase the value of your own research, intelligence, and other knowledge-based products, projects, and processes. Since being launched, the Handbook v.4 has already been ordered from as far away as China, and been selected as a required textbook by Columbia University's innovative Information and Knowledge Strategy program.

Review:

[The KVC Handbook] is going to be a textbook for my Information and Knowledge Strategy classes [K4301 Management and Leadership in the Knowledge Domain]. The whole idea of measures and metrics is so critical to successful knowledge services. --Columbia University lecturer Guy St. Clair (President and Knowledge Services Evangelist, SMR International)

An elegantly prepared and meticulously articulated contribution to the intelligence and strategy literature. A rare, well balanced combination of grounded academic theory and pragmatic, useful guidance. --SCIP Council of Fellows Chair and past President Clifford Kalb (Principal, C. Kalb Associates)

I looked to this book for useful tips, and I was not disappointed. Avoids corporate speak, that awful business jargon of most books. Can benefit everyone in positions to make decisions, including all C-suite executives. --SCIP Fellow Seena Sharp (author of Competitive Intelligence Advantage, and President, Sharp Market Intelligence)
