Editorial Reviews


"Enabling Knowledge Creation is not only carefully written and an interesting read, but it is also very practical and action oriented. The book is full of extremely useful frameworks and suggestions as well as case studies of successful companies in Japan, Europe, and the United States. It
will clearly become a standard handbook in the knowledge management field."- Michael A. Cusumano, Sloan Management Review Distinguished Professor, MIT Sloan School of Management and co-author of Microsoft Secrets and Competing On Internet Time

"Von Krogh, Ichijo and Nonaka write from the deep and accurate conviction that the most important but hardest part of enabling knowing is nurturing the tacit dimensions of knowledge."- Dorothy A. Leonard, William J. Abernathy Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

"Enabling Knowledge Creation is a key volume in the new second generation knowledge research texts, well written and researched by three outstanding scholars. It should be studied and absorbed by anyone working with knowledge and knowledge contexts."--Larry Prusak, Executive Director, IBM
Institute for Knowledge Management

"Knowledge creation requires an organized effort, says this international author team. They offer a detailed program along with five enablers: a knowledge vision, managed conversations, a team of knowledge activists, a contextual framework, and a distribution process."--Business Reader
