The complexity of innovation increases with the growth in knowledge available to organizations, and with this comes the need to determine its place in business.
Tomorrow’s KM: Innovation, best practice and the future of knowledge management focuses on the relationship between innovation and KM, elaborating on the role of KM as the facilitator and enabler of change. Consisting of in-depth case studies and insight from experts within varied fields, this book offers some contextual trendspotting and a general overview of the market. In order to “innovate”, one needs to know what it actually means.
