The field of knowledge management emerged as a combination of various disciplines more than a decade ago. Initially, the main focus of both academic and popular publications in the field tended to be on information technology, but now new writers on the role of knowledge are exploring fresh approaches to management, which are holistic rather than functional, and which treat knowledge as an organization's most important source of capital.
Focusing on the epistemology and ontology of knowledge and knowledge creation at team, organizational, and inter-organizational levels, this work also includes a new introduction providing readers with an authoritative overview of the subject area, as well as a chronological table of contents and a full index, which allow the reader to trace their own alternative themes.
