stan-book-launch-hs.jpgI’m pleased to announce that my new book, Proven Practices for Promoting a Knowledge Management Program, is now available. Published by Lucidea Press, it will show you how to build a successful knowledge management program that gets ongoing leadership commitment and creates a knowledge-sharing culture. Please read on for more detail, and a special offer from Lucidea.

My book includes such topics as the essential elements of a knowledge management program, how to lay the foundation for success, the secrets to obtaining early and ongoing leadership commitment, tips for communication strategies that actually do influence and engage your audience, how to assess and leverage technology appropriately, and powerful methods of nurturing a knowledge-sharing culture (including recognizing and rewarding participants). Finally, you’ll read detailed case studies of 10 organizations—among them Microsoft and NASA—that will inspire you as you set your own knowledge management strategy.

  1. Define the Essentials
  2. Lay the Foundation
  3. Obtain Leadership Commitment
