Edward Elgar,
Pub. Date:
In the information age information management is a source of incredible power, whether political, social or economic. This collection of 11 articles shows how developing and transition nations use a broad range of knowledge management processes and practices. The contributors consider both theory and practice in their findings of solutions for such common problems as leakage of knowledge, integration of knowledge sharing cultures and promotion of management learning. Topics on theoretical developments in intercultural and inter-institutional knowledge management include a comparison of social institutions and knowledge management. Case studies on transition economies include the former Poland as well as China and Russia, while those on Asia include the Taiwanese high-tech industries and the caste structures in India. Papers on Africa, the Middle East and Latin America cover Mauritius, the Middle East and North Africa, Latin American culture's impact on knowledge management.
