The #1 practical knowledge management implementation guide—now completely updated!
  • Incremental, results-driven techniques that build on existing knowledge and infrastructure
  • Covers planning, design, development, deployment, and management
  • Powerful new solutions for measuring the ROI of KM platforms

In The Knowledge Management Toolkit, Second Edition, leading consultant Amrit Tiwana walks step by step through the development of a state-of-the-art enterprise Knowledge Management Platform. Thoroughly revised to reflect today's latest tools, technologies, and best practices, this hands-on guide offers a complete roadmap for building KM systems incrementally?with each step delivering new business value, and seamlessly building on the work that preceded it.

  • Identify the knowledge most crucial to your business
  • Align business strategy and knowledge management
  • Leverage existing infrastructure
  • Transition from managing data to knowledge
  • Focus on process, and on tacit?not just explicit?knowledge
  • Architect a future-proof, adaptable KM platform

  • Rigorously calculate ROI on KM systems

Among this edition's many new features: a thoroughly rewritten chapter on strategy; powerful new "real-options" methods for assessing ROI; in-depth discussions of knowledge platforms and digital peer-to-peer networks; many new case studies; and much more. CD-ROM INCLUDED
