This book reviews the field of Knowledge Management, taking a holistic approach that includes both "soft" and "hard" aspects. It provides a broad perspective on the field, rather than one based on a single viewpoints from Computer Science or Organizational Learning, offering a comprehensive and integrated conception of Knowledge Management. The chapters represent the best Knowledge Management articles published in the 21st century in Knowledge Management Research & Practice and the European Journal of Information Systems, with contributors including Ikujiro Nonaka, Frada Burstein, and David Schwartz. Most of the chapters contribute significantly to practise as well as theory. The OR Essentials series presents a unique cross-section of high quality research work fundamental to understanding contemporary issues and research across a range of Operational Research topics. It brings together some of the best research papers from the highly respected journals of the Operational Research Society, also published by Palgrave Macmillan.
Johnson (1988) views organizational culture as a web of several elements: paradigm (i.e., mission, vision, and values), symbols, power structures, organizational structures, control systems, routines, rituals, and myths.

Combining unique practical experience with a sophisticated historical and theoretical framework, this impressive work offers a new basis to explore indigenous intellectual property. In this wide-ranging and imaginative study, Anderson has laid the groundwork for future scholarship in the field. Hopefully this work will set a new trajectory for how this important topic is approached and advanced with indigenous people. Brad Sherman, University of Queensland, Australia This informative book investigates how indigenous and traditional knowledge has been produced and positioned within intellectual property law and the effects of this position in both national and international jurisdictions. Drawing upon critical cultural and legal theory, Jane Anderson illustrates how the problems facing the inclusion of indigenous knowledge resonate with tensions that characterise intellectual property as a whole. She explores the extent that the emergence of indigenous interests in intellectual property law is a product of shifting politics within law, changing political environments, governmental intervention through strategic reports and innovative instances of individual agency. The author draws on long-term practical experience of working with indigenous people and communities whilst engaging with ongoing debates in the realm of legal theory. Detailing a comprehensive view on how indigenous knowledge has emerged as a discrete category within intellectual property law, this book will benefit researchers, academics and students dealing with law in the fields of IP, human rights, property and environmental law. It will also appeal to anthropologists, sociologists, philosophers and cultural theorists.

Energy related infrastructures are crucial to political organization. They shape the contours of states and international bodies, as well as corporations and communities, framing their material existence and their fears and idealisations of the future. Ethnographies of Power brings together ethnographic studies of contemporary entanglements of energy and political power. Revisiting classic anthropological notions of power, it asks how changing energy related infrastructures are implicated in the consolidation, extension or subversion of contemporary political regimes and discovers what they tell us about politics today.
If energy politics are a matter of governance, energopolitics are a matter of governmentality. Central to this definition is the power/knowledge nexus and indirect government through conduct of conduct. This includes social and cultural ...

This book takes its point of departure from the overwhelming interest in theories of the body and performativity in sociology and cultural studies in recent years. It explores a variety of ways of looking at dance as a social and artistic (bodily) practice as a means of generating insights into the politics of identity and difference as they are situated and traced through representations of the body and bodily practices. These issues are addressed through a series of case studies.
