Below you can find my list of sources for the work presented on this site.
First, for those of you interested in reading more on this, I particularly recommend:
Botha et al. (2008): The book is in two parts. The first presents a very concise and in-depth overview of
knowledge management (KM), organizational learning,
organizational memory, organizational culture, and so on. The second part offers one of the most in-depth looks at knowledge management systems that I have ever seen in a KM book.
Gamble & Blackwell 2001: An older text, but a very well written one, presenting an excellent overview of KM, which extends beyond
what is offered in most books (e.g.
discussing external relationships).
Liebowitz (2009): A short book focused on knowledge retention. It offers many interesting case studies, taking a more practical oriented approach than other texts.
There are many noted authors that I did not list above (e.g. Brown & Duguid's contribution to
communities of practice) since I was trying to point the reader in the
direction of more general KM texts.
