My Favorite Knowledge Management Story and its Lessons Learned for Today

Portals and KM

Knowledge management has been around for over twenty years now. This is also one of the clearest cases I have seen of an organization moving to a knowledge-based business model and then aligning its knowledge management system to directly support this new model.

The Knowledge Management Impact Challenge

Net-Map Toolbox

How can you measure the impact of knowledge management? Many of us are trying to find ways to effectively measure and demonstrate the results of our investments in knowledge and learning.
