Mark E.Nissen - Harnessing Knowledge Dynamics
“Harnessing Knowledge Dynamics: Principled Organizational Knowing & Learning” draws from emerging knowledge-flow theory to provide stable principles on which to build a practice of knowledge management. It draws also from diverse, real-world experience to provide operational applications of knowledge-flow principles in practice. The book builds upon theory but targets practice; it takes knowledge known only by a few researchers and shares it with many leaders and managers. It translates what is arcane and controversial today into managerial guidance that is sophisticated yet practical. It complements the many extant management books on strategy, technology, knowledge and systems while addressing a well-recognized and significant void. This book provides 30 principles on which to base the most important decisions and actions in an organization: harnessing knowledge dynamics. Such principled approach defines a unique place for and contribution of the book. This book provides also 30 leadership mandates to make actionable the principles and applications presented in the volume. Such integration of principles and applications defines another unique place for and contribution of the book.
