Designing a successful KM strategy
Information Today, Inc. announces the publication, in print and e-book editions, of Designing a Successful KM Strategy: A Guide for the Knowledge Management Professional by Stephanie Barnes and Nick Milton. According to Barnes and Milton, when a firm’s knowledge management (KM) program isn’t aligned with organizational strategy, its success can be no more than a happy accident—if it succeeds at all.
In Designing a Successful KM Strategy, the authors have drawn on 20 plus years of professional KM experience to outline a step-by-step approach to crafting a KM strategy that supports an organization’s unique needs and goals.
The new book will equip KM professionals to:
- connect KM strategy to business strategy,
- identify the business drivers that KM will support,
- identify the firm’s strategic knowledge areas,
- understand and engage key stakeholders,
- incorporate sound change management principles, and
- design pilots that kick-start successful KM rollouts.
Stephanie Barnes has more than 20 years of experience in KM and accounting in the high technology, healthcare and public accounting sectors. She is currently a knowledge management consultant at Missing Puzzle Piece Consulting. Dr. Nick Milton is director and co-founder of Knoco Ltd.. With more than 21 years working in knowledge management, Milton has helped develop KM strategies, implementation programs and services for a wide range of organizations around the globe.
