Abstract: We recognize knowledge management as a socio-technical phenomenon where the basic social constructs such as person, team, and organization require support from information communication technology applications. In an era of business transition, the effective management of knowledge is proposed as a strategy that effectively utilizes organizational intangible assets.

A critical mass of some of the most sought-after research of our information technology and business world, this book proves an essential addition to every reference library collection.
