"The Knowledge Dividend proves that managing knowledge is not predominately an information technology issue. It focuses more on committing professionals who continuously learn and share their wealth of knowledge through virtual communities. It is through them that employees uncover hidden treasures - new ideas which benefit the company and themselves."
Kees Linse, Chief Operating Officer, Montell Polyolefins
"The Knowledge Dividend, based on KPMG's Value-Based Knowledge Management approach, is a very impressive volume that attempts (successfully) to summarize the state of our knowledge about knowledge management."
Chun Wei Choo, Professor, University of Toronto and author of The Knowing Organization: How organizations use Information to construct meaning, create knowledge, and make decisions
"The Knowledge Dividend refocuses the Information Systems (IS) industry on its real mission: to help companies succeed through strategic applications enabled by state-of-the-art information and communication technology - not automating paperwork or replacing people."
Dean Myer, President NDMA and author of The Information Edge
"Despite considerable media attention and scores of conferences and articles on knowledge management, organizations are still very confused about the concept and how it can benefit them. Within this business environment, KPMG's research and thought leadership in the area of "knowledgement," as demonstrated in The Knowledge Dividend, provides a most comprehensive and thoughtful view of the subject that is so desperately needed today. It is truly a guiding light in the current maze of knowledge management ideas."
Dr. Marianne Hedin, Research Manager, International Data Corporation
"What we find especially compelling about KPMG's Value-Based Knowledge Management approach toward knowledge management is its value orientation. Understanding what intangible assets are worth is not meaningful unless assets are leveraged, and their full potential realized."
Mark O'Conner, Senior Analyst, Yankee group, Boston
"The three authors warn us that the current need for knowledge within organizations (the creation and distribution of it) will not automatically lead to success. This will only take place when knowledge becomes secondary to the value-creating abilities of the company."
Jan Paul Grollé, Chief Editor, Holland Management Review
