About this title


Inside Knowledge: Rediscovering the Source of Performance Improvement weaves a suspenseful tale of how several employees working in the fictional Grand Bay company discover how to leverage their knowledge to radically improve performance. Knowledge is often the most reliable sources of sustainable competitive advantage for companies, yet, until now, it has been very difficult to translate employee knowledge into performance improvements. Inside knowledge and pragmatic knowledge are the missing links that make the connection between employee experience and a firm’s ability to gain a competitive edge. Pragmatic knowledge results from continuous experimentation to enables employees to discover new ways to view their work and to improve performance, and is the result of the collaboration of both types of operational employees – workers and managers. Their interactions focus on discovering what works best in practice, and this refines the knowledge that drives performance improvement. This is not simply a theoretical approach, since successful companies such as Toyota have demonstrated that inside knowledge is a vital component to driving organizational innovations. Inside Knowledge offers seven pragmatic principles that allow any person working in any kind of organization to create and continuously improve knowledge for improving performance.

Store Description

Sharing is the best surprise When we share our excess with others we¿re often surprised by what we feel, what changes in us, and who we get to know in the process. Sharehouse Goods exists to create that experience for as many people as possible. Sharehouse Goods receives excess stuff from individuals or organizations (our sharers), and then we liquidate that stuff, creating jobs for people in Milwaukee. The process is simple: we receive what people are willing to share, and then we sell it online or at our storefront, creating revenue for the sharers (to keep or to donate), and jobs for people who are struggling to find employment. There¿s a lot of sharing going on, and even more surprises, at Sharehouse Goods.
