Working knowledge : how organizations manage what they know by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

54 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 2,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from their work with more than thirty knowledge-rich firms, Davenport and Prusak examine how all types of companies can effectively understand, analyze, measure, and manage their intellectual assets, turning corporate wisdom into market value. They categorize knowledge work into four sequential activities - accessing, generating, embedding, and transferring - and look at the key skills, techniques, and processes of each. While they present a practical approach to cataloging and storing knowledge so that employees can easily leverage it throughout the firm, the authors caution readers about the limits of communications and information technology in managing intellectual capital."--Jacket

Information ecology : mastering the information and knowledge environment by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Information Ecology, Thomas Davenport proposes a revolutionary new way to look at information management, one that takes into account the total information environment within an organization. Arguing that the information that comes from computer systems may be considerably less valuable to managers than information that flows in from a variety of other sources, the author describes an approach that encompasses the company's entire information environment, the management of which he calls information ecology. Citing examples drawn from his own extensive research and consulting, including such major firms as AT & T, American Express, Ford, General Electric, Hallmark, Hoffman La Roche, IBM, Polaroid, Pacific Bell, and Toshiba, Davenport illuminates the critical components of information ecology, and at every step along the way, he provides a quick assessment survey for managers to see how their organization measures up. He discusses the importance of developing an overall strategy for information use; explores the infighting, jealousy over resources, and political battles that can frustrate information sharing; underscores the importance of looking at how people really use information (how they search for it, modify it, share it, hoard it, and even ignore it) and the kinds of information they want; describes the ideal information staff, who not only store and retrieve information, but also prune, provide context, enhance style, and choose the right presentation medium; examines how information management should be done on a day to day basis; and presents several alternatives to the machine engineering approach to structuring and modeling information
What's the big idea? : creating and capitalizing on the best management thinking by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas H. Davenport and Laurence Prusak say that some managers have found ways to improve their odds of success in the risky but essential game of idea management. In What's the Big Idea?, they introduce a largely unsung class of managers they call "idea practitioners"--Individuals who do the real work of importing and implementing new ideas into businesses. While gurus reap most of the credit when big ideas take flight, Davenport and Prusak's research reveals that idea practitioners actually play the most important role: They turn the right ideas into action."--Jacket
Managing information strategically by James V McGee( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part II offers guidance on the management of information to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of important organizational processes. Here, McGee and Prusak focus on three areas that have previously received scant attention - the definition of information management processes, the design of information architectures, and the management of behavior regarding information. With regard to the last of these, the authors focus particularly on issues of information politics. Noting that information access - like access to other important resources - is a form of power, they explain how behavior around information can be highly political in major companies. By analogy to alternative forms of government (monarchy, federalism, etc.), the book outlines the major models of information politics within organizations, discusses the advantages and drawbacks of each, and highlights the danger of imposing an inappropriate model on an organizational culture

Judgment calls : 12 stories of big decisions and the teams that got them right by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What's the story behind great decisions? Is decision-making the responsibility of one leader or should it rest of the shoulders of the collective team? In Judgment Calls, authors Tom Davenport, Brooke Manville, and Larry Prusak share ten stories of organizations that have successfully tapped the diverse perspectives and deep knowledge of their people to build an organizational decision-making capability--a competence they say can make the difference between success and failure. We know great decisions depend on judgment calls; and in today's fast-moving world, there's more pressure than ever to make quicker decisions to keep the organization moving at the speed of business. But the knowledge of one person or one leader isn't always sufficient. So how can you set up a model that taps the collective judgment of a group so that the right decisions are made, and the company profits? Through the stories in Judgment Calls, the authors--a seasoned group of management thinkers and advisors--ma
