From my perspective, this is a book all managers and professionals should be given the opportunity to read. It provides much of the fundamental background for understanding KM and the food for thought to feed the discussions that need to occure in order for knowledge management initiatives to succeed and flourish."

"At Kent State University our graduate interdisciplinary program, Information & Knowledge Management (IAKM), is one of the best locations for teaching a course that will rely on this new and thought provoking journey through the field of KM. Dr. Dalkir has provided a rich foundation in the theory behind KM and draws in an engaging learner dialogue that demonstrates how theory can be practically engaged in the dynamic environments of KM-based institutions, businesses, and governments.
Kim is an exemplary author who draws together numerous practical and theoretical frameworks. This book is the foundation for many highly motivated learners who wish to comprehend and apply the elements and theories that are required to construct and launch successful KM initiatives and organizations.
