`This body of knowlege should be of interest to human resource management specialists. ...[and] to those who are interested in developing their knowledge and understanding of corporate learning and what a learning organisations is. Indeed, [it]... will appeal ...to academics as it offers a useful introduction ....and offers some pointers for devising human resource management strategies' - Peter Trim, University of London, British Academy of Management News

`Drs Richard C Huseman and Jon P Goodman set forth a strategic model for conceptualizing and leveraging knowledge that is invaluable for executives who want to capture, share, and leverage the power of knowledge assets.' - Thomas Sattelberger, Corpora

Based on a landmark study of over 200 of the largest companies in the United States, this book examines how the intellectual assets of a corporation can be leveraged to create `knowledge organization'.

The book includes an overview of corporate evolution from the classic formally structured organization to an adaptive, knowledge-based model. It details the forces of change which contemporary corporations must respond to, and describes techniques used to restructure organizations. Readers are presented with real-world examples that offer insight into the best organizational practice and blueprints for implementation.
