Knowledge management is recognized as a competitive advantage and several organizations are incorporating it as a core strategy to enhance their organizational competitive advantage. Many of the organizations that have implemented knowledge management as a corporate strategy have not achieved their objectives and are having a growing sense of disenchantment about its practicality. Research revealed that organizational culture is a major barrier to creating and leveraging knowledge assets. This research examined the relationship between organizational culture and knowledge management. The Competing Values Framework devised by Robert Quinn and John Rohrbaugh (1983), was used to analyze the differences in organizational culture profiles and how they might be related to the various dimensions of knowledge management. The implications of this study can be of significant value to organizations as they prepare to implement knowledge management initiatives. The findings could help organizations assess the likelihood that implementation of knowledge management initiatives will be successful or will increase the organization’s competitive advantage in relationship to the current culture.
This book describes the application of Knowledge Management in the not-for-profit sector, focussing particularly on the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It is based on the research undertaken by me as part of my MBA at Judge Business School, University of Cambridge. It includes a study on the existing Knowledge Management literature, Knowledge Management processes being practiced in not-for-profit organisations (including WHO, NHS, ILO etc), an analysis of the knowledge available at the Global Fund through a Knowledge Management audit, and makes recommendations on practices that the Global Fund can follow in order to manage their internal knowledge more efficiently. This book is expected to be useful for those from the Not-for-Profit sector to formulate and implement Knowledge Management initiatives.
Today there is rather large number of various monographs, publications, the Internet portals devoted to the concept of knowledge management. There are conferences, forums for discussion of problems and prospects of implementation of technology of knowledge management in the organizations regularly held in many countries. This interest proves that management of knowledge is currently on the crossroads of different disciplines as absolutely new, very actual scientific area, and it is also the subject of works of many researchers around the world. The aim of this project is to study the methodological basis of the phenomenon of knowledge management in order to promote its use in advanced organizations, as well as creating the project of improvement of knowledge management integration into the management structure of a company.
Revision with unchanged content. Knowledge management (KM) is on its way to becoming an integral business function and a new aspect of management for many organizations. Although it can be argued that public sector organizations increasingly face similar pressures as the pressures on the private sector, public sector organizations, partly because of their public ownership and limited competition, may not pursue KM as strongly and effectively as private sector organizations. It seems, therefore, reasonable to expect that there will be differences in understanding, best practice, and performance indicators between the two sectors and how they impact drivers for KM activity. This study tests empirically the basic KM arguments that KM in public organizations differs from that carried out in private organization. In the literature review, the key dimensions of KM are described (chapter 2). In Chapter 3, research model and the hypotheses were developed. Chapter 4 covers the analysis and the findings from the survey. Chapter 5 summarizes findings and connects them to the purpose of the study, and makes recommendations for further developments of KM in pubic organization with some conclusions. This book makes a contribution toward the knowledge and competences needed by researchers and practitioners in KM field.
Understanding agricultural knowledge management system is important for agricultural development because it can help to understand their indigenous knowledge, how to acquire,use and transfer their knowledge. In Ethiopia,different research and extension works have been done to alleviate agricultural problems but these efforts did not bring significant improvement.Currently, among other developmental resources, appropriate and relevant knowledge is an important resource. However,in Ethiopia little efforts are done to study agricultural knowledge management systems of certain locality. So, this book can give brief understanding about agricultural knowledge management system and its challenges and opportunities to design and implement demand-driven agricultural research and extension works. Besides, it helps for policy makers,researchers and extension workers how to strengthen and scaling up the existing knowledge creation, acquisition,utilization and diffusion system of a success full locality and how to bring the knowledge sources, transferors and users in one place to deliver the right knowledge at the right time and place to the right users.

In order to reach their goals and continue the ongoing learning process, like other organizations universities also need the effective use of knowledge management. The knowledge management is ongoing process and it has to be organized in a way that always open to new ideas. In universities where research and development studies play an important role, knowledge management has very critical situation. According to the organizational structure, universities are institutions directly related with knowledge and they are the major players of how knowledge distributed among communities. In order to reach their mission, universities should have effective knowledge management. Because of studies in this area is not sufficient enough in universities, in the development phase of knowledge management universities should focus on areas such as how to use effective use of knowledge and how to improve current situation. The aim of this study is to find effective ways and methods for professors and universities board of directors about knowledge management and its tools.
Modern project management recognizes that previous knowledge-based and experience-based decisionmaking is one of the central tasks of a project manager. Project Knowledge Management with Hierarchical Case Retrieval Networks describes and demonstrates a methodology for complex decision making, where multiple issues must be resolved, such as the interrelationships between project staffing, costs, timetables and risks. It integrates general project management knowledge and the particular experiences of a specific organization, describes the structure of complex multi-issue decisions, and shows how ongoing decisionmaking can be enhanced by retrieving case histories of similar decisions. A networked procedure of processes, decisions and case histories aids the project manager in exploring relevant precedents, and provides the best opportunity to make decisions based on previous knowledge and experience. The book is for use in academic and professional programs aimed at helping researchers, students and professionals to grasp the nature and resolution of complex project management decisions.
