By Robert C. Camp, PhD, PE Chairman Global Benchmarking Network (GBN), Best Practice InstituteTM, Rochester, NY, USA The perception, sharing, and adoption of best practices is mostly attributed to the activity called benchmarking. Obtaining maximum value from best practices is usually attributed to knowledge management. One is an extension of the other. Knowledge management can be looked upon as the management of knowledge about best practices whether in the mind as human capital or as intellectual assets or property. Most organizations now recognize the absolute imperative for the identification and collection of best practices through benchmarking. It can be a strategic strength when practiced and a fatal weakness if not pursued. But there is a serious disconnection in the exchange and adoption process. Despite significant advances in the approaches and technology that pursue improvement (six sigma, process redesign, customer relationship management, etc.), organizations continue to experience great difficulty in successfully transferring leading practices. Some would say these are exemplary, proven, observed, or promising, but, in the final analysis, they are best practices -with the objective of becoming world class. More insight is needed into how leading, or best practices are transferred and adopted - said differently, best practices for knowledge transfer or knowledge management.

In this volume organizational learning theory is used to analyse various practices of managing and facilitating knowledge sharing within companies. Experiences with three types of knowledge sharing, namely knowledge acquisition, knowledge reuse, and knowledge creation, at ten large companies are discussed and analyzed. This critical analysis leads to the identification of traps and obstacles when managing knowledge sharing, when supporting knowledge sharing with IT tools, and when organizations try to learn from knowledge sharing practices. The identification of these risks is followed by a discussion of how organizations can avoid them. This work will be of interest to researchers and practitioners working in organization science and business administration. Also, consultants and organizations at large will find the book useful as it will provide them with insights into how other organizations manage and facilitate knowledge sharing and how potential failures can be prevented.

The ability to manage knowledge is relevant for millions of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that operate in high-tech environments. They strongly depend on external knowledge about customers, technologies, and competitors because, as opposed to large companies, they have limited internal knowledge resources and little power to control their business environments. Present KM literature, however, mainly focuses on large companies and therefore does not explain, how SMEs, for example, can successfully apply groupware, data mining, semantic networks, and knowledge maps. This book addresses this problem by introducing the concept of knowledge integration (KI) that places emphasis on the identification, acquisition and use of external knowledge. Drawing from this theoretical basis, the book presents concepts and instruments specifically designed for SMEs, as well as examples of their implementation and use in practice.

Knowledge Management (KM) is an effort to increase useful knowledge in the organization. It is a natural outgrowth of late twentieth century movements to make organizational management and operations more effective, of higher quality, and more responsive to constituents in a rapidly changing global environment. This document traces the evolution of KM in organizations, summarizing the most influential research and literature in the field. It also presents an overview of selected common and current practices in knowledge management, including the relationship between knowledge management and decision making, with the intention of making a case for KM as a series of processes and not necessarily a manipulation of things. The final section highlights the use of social networking and commonly adopted Web applications to increase the value of social capital and to connect practitioners with clients and colleagues.
