Knowledge management (KM) comprises a range of strategies and practices used in an organization to identify, create, represent, distribute, and enable adoption of insights and experiences. Such insights and experiences comprise knowledge, either embodied in individuals or embedded in organizations as processes or practices.Knowledge management efforts typically focus on organizational objectives such as improved performance, competitive advantage, innovation, the sharing of lessons learned, integration and continuous improvement of the organization. KM efforts overlap with organizational learning, and may be distinguished from that by a greater focus on the management of knowledge as a strategic asset and a focus on encouraging the sharing of knowledge.
Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS) in disaster management have been used since time immemorial with very successful results in Zimbabwe and other parts of the world. Its use during colonial times has been perceived with backwardness and primitive and therefore has not been recognized in decision and policy making. The need to revive IKS has since emerged as the scientific strategies have proved inadequate in many instances as they are less trusted by communities, are usually externally driven and at times do not address the critical needs of the communities. IKS has not been documented and is not widely known. This study therefore sought to bridge the knowledge gap by collecting, and promoting incorporation of IKS in disaster management strategies. The study established that IKS has a significant role especially in forecasting and disaster preparedness. It helps to predict climate conditions with a high degree of reliability. The study established that with the advent of climate change and increased population, an integration of IKS and scientific systems is required. It offers options for a wide dissemination of IKS, including supporting it with legally binding instruments.

Given that resistance to change is a pervasive barrier to Information System implementation, organizations must appreciate the difficult process of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system implementation and the crucial knowledge in change management as well as the complex adoption process in order to derive the benefits of the costly ERP systems. Research indicated most implementation failures involve organizational- and people- related issues. Thus, understanding why people accept or reject information technology is one of the most challenging issues in information systems research. This book provides valuable information in critical success factors and change management strategies for ERP system implementation as well as discussions on three adoption models. This research should help shed some light in the relationship between an information system implementation and the influence of planned change efforts to help people with technology adoption. This book should be useful to professionals in the information systems research and the technology adoption fields, or anyone who may be implementing new technology in their organization.
Diabetes mellitus is a complex disease requiring extensive strategies for effective management. Self-management of diabetes can be expensive and challenging for low-income patients. Current diabetes education and management programs largely target persons with higher levels of formal education and incomes. Kemper, Savage, Niederbaumer, and Anthony (2005) explored differences in knowledge about diabetes among low-income persons who had varying levels of formal education. The present study proposes to extend Kemper et al.’s study to examine the predictive relationship between diabetes self-management knowledge and level of formal education on depressive symptoms in low-income persons with diabetes mellitus. Results may guide nurses in designing effective diabetic education for low income persons who have varying degrees of depression symptoms and varying degrees of diabetes self-management knowledge.
Traditional knowledge has only recently touched the scientific chord of western academic knowledge. More and more researchers today are rotating towards it not only to fill gaps in existing societal knowledge but also to find original knowledge concepts and viewpoints for application in an up to date context. Since tribal groups and indigenous or local have lived within their local environments since time immemorial it is obvious that they do acquire a rich knowledge about nature. Hence, research on nature and environments is enriched by incorporating traditional knowledge of local indigenous or tribal people. Traditional knowledge finds echoes in some of the current philosophy of disaster management. I wrap up that traditional knowledge of traditional local or indigenous groups all over the world not only desires to be recognized, conserved and humdrum but also is to be incorporated into efforts to formulate effective disaster management strategies.
