Global competition for human capital, organizational relevance, money, and success is increasingly denominated in the currency of knowledge, yet knowledge in most organizations is often treated as proprietary or information technology issues. Consequently, leaders must become skilled in leading with and through knowledge in order to succeed in the new economy.

Challenges for leaders today are myriad and often seem overwhelmingly complex, but solutions begin with basics such as understanding how to: acquire needed competitive knowledge and capital, use knowledge to produce lasting results, build an organization that is aligned with mission, and improve decision-making. This book describes the process of knowledge leadership and highlights effective tools for all leaders to be successful.

Knowledge leadership is the new tool of the leadership trade. Learn to use knowledge wisely.

About the Author:

Roderic Hewlett is executive vice president and chief academic officer of Walsh College in Troy, Michigan.

Review:

The book is a good outline of what leaders need to be aware of as we transition into an era in which information is a commodity and the application of the right information by the right people at the right time for the right result becomes the focus for competitive advantage. (PsycCRITIQUES)

Hewlett describes how to utilize knowledge about people, products, services, competitors, and environments to further decision making and the success of organizations. Following a description of knowledge and its effects, he discusses professional intellect, human and structural capital, "knowledge organizations," and the roles of leader and workers. (Reference and Research Book News)
