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

48 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,932 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
Process innovation : reengineering work through information technology by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cornerstone to process innovation's dramatic results is information technology - a largely untapped resource, but a crucial "enabler" of process innovation. In turn, only a challenge like process innovation affords maximum use of information technology's potential. Thomas Davenport provides numerous examples of firms that have succeeded or failed in combining business change and technology initiatives. He also highlights the role of new organizational structures and human resource programs in facilitating this process
Competing on analytics : the new science of winning by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

37 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning, Thomas H. Davenport and Jeanne G. Harris argue that the frontier for using data has shifted dramatically. Leading companies are doing more than just collecting and storing information in large quantities. They're now building their competitive strategies around data-driven insights that are, in turn, generating impressive business results. Their secret weapon? Analytics: sophisticated quantitative and statistical analysis and predictive modeling supported by data-savvy senior leaders and powerful information technology."--Jacket
Thinking for a living : how to get better performance and results from knowledge workers by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and German and held by 1,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Thinking for a Living, Thomas Davenport contends that knowledge workers are vastly different from other types of workers in their motivations, attitudes, and need for autonomy - and thus require unconventional management techniques if they are to be more productive. Based on extensive research involving more than one hundred companies and six hundred knowledge workers, Thinking for a Living provides insights into how knowledge workers think, how they accomplish tasks, and what motivates them to excel." "Davenport identifies four major categories of knowledge workers - transaction, integration, expert, and collaborative - and presents a framework for matching each category with management strategies that yield the greatest performance."--Jacket

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

21 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 904 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
Big data @ work : dispelling the myths, uncovering the opportunities by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the term 'big data' first came on the scene, bestselling author Tom Davenport (Competing on Analytics, Analytics at Work) thought it was just another example of technology hype. But his research in the years that followed changed his mind. Now, in clear, conversational language, Davenport explains what big data means--and why everyone in business needs to know about it. Big Data at Work covers all the bases: what big data means from a technical, consumer, and management perspective; what its opportunities and costs are; where it can have real business impact; and which aspects of this hot topic have been oversold."--Jacket
What's the big idea? : creating and capitalizing on the best management thinking by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

9 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

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

15 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Great decisions depend on judgment calls, but in a complicated and fast-changing situation (like a modern business), no one leader's knowledge and perspective is sufficient to make them wisely. Some decision-makers have found ways to tap the collective judgment of their people - and leaders of other groups can profit from them. What's the story behind great decisions? Is decision-making the responsibility of one leader or should it rest on the shoulders of the collective team? In Judgment Calls, authors Tom Davenport and Brooke Manville share twelve 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
Analytics at work : smarter decisions, better results by Thomas H Davenport( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In their previous book, Competing on Analytics, Thomas H. Davenport and Jeanne G. Harris showed how pioneering firms were building their entire strategies around their analytical capabilities. Rather than "going with their gut" when pricing products, maintaining inventory, or hiring talent, managers in these firms use data, analysis, and systematic reasoning to make decisions that improve efficiency, risk management, and profits." "Now, in Analytics at Work, Davenport, Harris, and coauthor Robert Morison reveal how all managers can effectively deploy analytics in their day-to-day operations - one business decision at a time. The authors show how many types of analytical tools, from statistical analysis to qualitative measures like systematic behavior coding, can improve decisions about everything from what new product offering might interest customers to whether marketing dollars are being most effectively deployed." "Based on new research and illustrated with examples from companies including Humana, Best Buy, Progressive Insurance, and Hotels.com, this implementation-focused guide outlines a five-step model for deploying and succeeding with analytical initiatives."--Jacket

Knowledge management case book : Siemens best practises by Gilbert Probst( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and German and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a Foreword by Dr. Heinrich von Pierer President and CEO of Siemens AG While theoretical perspectives on knowledge management abound, there is clearly a lack of shared practical applications and experiences. This book provides a perspective on knowledge management at Siemens - an internationally recognised benchmark. Tom Davenport and Gilbert Probst bring together instructive case studies from different areas of this major transnational corporation that reflect the rich insights gained from years of experience in practising knowledge management. The Knowledge Management Case Book provides a comprehensive account of how organisational knowledge assets can be managed effectively. Specific emphasis is given to the development of generic lessons that can be learned from Siemens' experience. The book also offers a roadmap to building a 'mature knowledge enterprise', thereby enhancing our understanding of the steps that need to be taken in order to sustain competitive dominance in the knowledge economy.

It's both. The key is augmentation, utilizing technology to help humans work better, smarter, and faster. Instead of viewing these machines as competitive interlopers, we can see them as partners and collaborators in creative problem solving as we move into the next era. The choice is ours, "--Amazon.com
