Abstract: Knowledge management (KM) has been implemented in many organizations with impressive success; however, many KM initiatives fail due to a lack of understanding of operational complexities. For multinational organizations, the level of complexity increases many times over.
Strategic Knowledge Management in Multinational Organizations presents a comprehensive set of investigations of a wide range of environmental factors, both internal and external, that contribute to the key challenge of complexity in KM. These factors include culture, technology, communications, infrastructure, and learning and leadership structures. With its inclusive coverage of the salient issues, this reference publication provides libraries with a single source for the defining research on KM in multinational contexts.
