A number of developing countries, including small island states have common problems that have affected their development and growth. Knowledge Management (KM) initiatives can be used to address some of these issues, but these developing countries need to understand what is needed to implement them, in order to improve economic conditions. While many of these countries have access to technologies that can be used to assist in knowledge management, relevant and low cost KM initiatives need to be considered in improving their existing KM processes. Sectors critical to the growth of these developing countries include health care, crime management, disaster recovery management, small and medium size enterprise development. Knowledge Management for Development: Domains, Strategies and Technologies for Developing Countries highlights the opportunities in these sectors and provides advice as to how these countries should go about understanding, building and adopting the relevant KM strategies and technologies. This book identifies appropriate technologies which should be considered to increase productivity within the identified sectors in the developing countries and also sectors in where knowledge management initiatives can yield maximum value. It also considers the constraints of these territories, recommending appropriate technologies and strategies for KM initiatives. It provides advice on how these technologies should be adopted in these sectors of developing countries. Investing in these strategies should benefit these countries development and growth.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the book reviews:

"This book is a compilation of several scientific papers related to knowledge management (KM). ... By reading this book, policy makers, consultants, and information technology (IT) experts working in development efforts could leverage their existing strategies. The book provides some interesting insights into the needs and limitations of implementing KM systems, yet, as the editors posit, `Knowledge is considered to be the competitive resource.'" (Carla Sanchez Aguilar, Computing Reviews, June, 2014)
