Knowledge Management in Organizations is the most comprehensive and critical textbook on the subject. Encompassing a number of perspectives - including organizational behaviour, HRM, systems, and sociocultural factors - the text introduces the concept of knowledge before examining how it can be effectively managed within the organizations in which we work.

The international author team ensure the broad theoretical coverage is brought to life with practical illustrations and case studies exploring topics such as knowledge sharing via social media, knowledge transfer in different cultural contexts, and the interaction of leadership, culture, and knowledge management in Australian SMEs. Examples are diverse, international, and highly relevant to each chapter, showcasing the significance of knowledge management in all types of organizational settings.

'Time to Reflect' boxes, review and discussion questions, and a question or activity to accompany every illustration and case study ensure students are challenged to engage with the subject critically and reflectively. Despite the critical approach and depth of coverage, the text remains accessible through its widely praised writing style, coherent structure, in-chapter definition boxes, and manageable size.

This book is accompanied by a selection of online resources:

Finally a text book that provides a refreshing and global insight into knowledge management and is a rich learning resource to both academic tutors and students. * Dr Derek Watson, The University of Sunderland *
Hislop et al.'s book provides students with a perfect introduction to knowledge management that develops critical and scholarly understanding of the key concepts and issues concerning how KM is developed and managed in organizations. Packed with learning materials such as case studies, self-reflection and discussion topics, together with access to online resources that provide further materials, this book is core reading for all students and academics engaged in KM study. * Virginia Power, The University of the West of England, Bristol *
The main strength of Hislop et al.'s book is that it helps the reader to think beyond differences in perspective and to explore the assumptions that may underlie these differences. I think, in addition, the book scores well in terms of clarity of reading and spread of examples. * Dr Ana Cristina Vasconcelos, The University of Sheffield *
Far better than most in its overview, detail and critical points. * Christian T. Lystbaek, Aarhus University *
