This book presents a series of techniques, practices and processes to help project managers and project staff to manage information in a systematic way that will help improve the project interventions. It is through information management that we can improve decision making process, learn and create new knowledge. Knowledge derives from information, as information derives from data. Information becomes knowledge when people do the work and realize an action that generates experiences. The creation of valuable knowledge depends on the adoption of a holistic approach to information management; an approach that takes into consideration organizational culture and politics, information economics and processes, information standards and policies, information strategies and governance. All this translates to an information ecosystem that puts people at the centre and technology as an enabler. Managing a project information system has to do more with managing human behaviours than managing technology.

Knowledge and its transfer are important to organizations in today’s knowledge-based economy. However, knowledge transfers are full of stickiness. This book proposes a unique perspective to overcome such problem - choosing the right knowledge transfer approach. Specifically, the book aims to examine three main questions: 1. What are the knowledge transfer approaches available to transfer knowledge? 2. What are the factors affecting the choice of knowledge transfer approach? 3. What are the effects of the choice of knowledge transfer approach on knowledge transfer stickiness? Findings suggest that different approaches are required to transfer different types of knowledge. Further, a fit between the knowledge transfer approach with the nature of knowledge is able to reduce knowledge transfer stickiness. In addition, it is also found that the degree of power relations present within organizations would influence knowledge management practices due to rent-seeking behavior of individuals. This book is excellent for students studying the topic of knowledge management, for scholars who conduct rigorous research on KM and for practitioners who need to practice KM activities.

Management is a process of organizing and directing the resources of an enterprise towards the achievement of certain objectives lay down by the same organization. It is an art as well as a science, as it involves the scarce skills of human beings and it promotes knowledge, like other sciences, which may be useful to the humanity. Management has grown as a separate discipline drawing upon the knowledge and skills of various disciplines like economics, commerce, cooperation, finance, political science, sociology, statistics, demography, quantitative techniques, engineering, ecology, geography, biology, etc. Management uses the relevant information from these disciplines and integrates them to form a multi-disciplinary and cross functional field of study and develops a broad-spectrum approach in dealing with organizational problems.
This book is motivated by my professional work experience and educational training background. While working for the University of Zambia, I observed a number of challenges that the institution faced with regard to the management of knowledge (explicit and tacit) supporting operations. In order to tackle these challenges, a study was conducted to see how best knowledge retention challenges could be tackled. The research culminated into a wealth of practices and techniques on knowledge retention that organisations can adopt and apply to mitigate the loss of relevant operational knowledge. At a glance therefore, this book has addressed issues on the value of knowledge, approaches to knowledge management and efforts that have been made by organisations in addressing knowledge-based operational challenges. The book has also addressed in detail issues surrounding knowledge retention such as the drivers for the knowledge retention in organisations and the components of knowledge retention identified as knowledge assessment, knowledge acquisition and knowledge transfer.
