Knowledge management continues to play an important role in management practice, in private and public organisations, in community informatics and in other groups. Once thought of as a fad it is now clear that knowledge management is an important issue which all organisations face and will continue to face for the foreseeable future. As a result the teaching of knowledge management and the research into its development as a field of study is of considerable importance to business schools, professional organisations, public sector bodies as well as to educators. Case studies can provide a contextual perspective on real world experiences in KM. This book contains 11 case studies chosen by Professor Kenneth Grant and it illustrates many of the important issues of which both students and practitioners need to be aware. These case studies should also prove useful as teaching examples. The case studies provided in this book cover subjects such as KM effectiveness gap analysis, the elicitation of intellectual capital performance, the reconfiguration of knowledge management practices and international strategic alliances. Private sector cases include examples from the pharmaceutical industry, manufacturing and consulting, while the public sector cases include the creation of a judicial environment, patient centred treatment in a general hospital and KM in the French Air Force fighter squadrons. The contributors to this book come from Australia, Canada, China, France, Italy, India, Malaysia, Spain, The Netherlands and The Untied Kingdom.

This authoritative new book explores the relationship between top management consultant teams and their clients. It presents through a series of case studies, from both the private and public sectors, best-practice consulting at the sharp end of contemporary management across all management disciplines. The case studies are drawn from the MCA Awards, which recognise Best Practice in all the categories of management. Firms present qualifying client engagements for evaluation by a distinguished panel drawn from industry and academia. Each case study explores a unique business situation and the way it was tackled by the team, and also examines how those teams responded to challenges during their projects and the unexpected lessons they learned. The case studies are embedded within an explanatory framework that draws out common themes, relates the case studies to generic models, and discusses how their approaches can be applied in other businesses. Case study clients include the International Olympic Committee, Sun Microsystems, Apache Corporation, Aon, Tesco, BT Business, MoD, Westminster City Council, BAE Systems, GCHQ, Sainsbury's Supermarkets, Home Office, Transport for London, and NHS Trusts.
