Ideal for managers, knowledge managers and leaders who want to learn more about Knowledge Management. In this book, author Leonardo Mora revises the concept of Knowledge Management by stepping back... More > into the definition of knowledge; The result,a new simple concept and framework is brought forward to better understand what knowledge management actually is, and expose a technical solution that can be built to harness this concept (knowledge). Then he explains how his knowledge theory goes hand in hand with something known as "Systems Thinking" and "The Learning Organization" where you tap a different type of leadership to bring people into sharing their knowledge. Mr. Mora explains the complexities of dealing with huge amounts of information and how companies can better implement knowledge management from his own experiences. Author's Background: Systems engineer who worked for Fortune 500 companies like BP, Visa, SAIC and others.< Less
