A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Knowledge Management

June 2015 | 168 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Written in a lively, conversational style, Knowledge Management looks at the nature of knowledge, including its definition and measurement, before the main concepts and theoretical contributions to knowledge management are reviewed and challenged, providing fresh insights into the central debates.

Conceived by Chris Grey as an antidote to conventional textbooks, each book in the ‘Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap’ series takes a core area of the curriculum and turns it on its head by providing a critical and sophisticated overview of the key issues and debates in an informal, conversational and often humorous way.

Suitable for students of Business and Management courses at Undergraduate and Postgraduate level and anyone interested in the concept of knowledge management.

Introduction: The Rise of Knowledge Management
Chapter 1: Situating Knowledge Management
Chapter 2: Knowledge Management?
Chapter 3: Knowledge Acquisition, Retention and Transfer
Chapter 4: Knowledge, Creativity and Innovation
Chapter 5: Ignorance, Forgetting and Unlearning

Good theoretical background combined with practical excercises and examples; easy to read and understand
