Knowledge management (KM) is about managing the lifecycle of knowledge consisting of creating, storing, sharing and applying knowledge. Two main approaches towards KM are codification and personalization. The first focuses on capturing knowledge using technology and the latter on the process of socializing for sharing and creating knowledge. Social media are becoming very popular as individuals and also organizations learn how to use it. The primary applications of social media in a business context are marketing and recruitment. But there is also a huge potential for knowledge management in these organizations. For example, wikis can be used to collect organizational knowledge and social networking tools, which leads to exchanging new ideas and innovation. The interesting part of social media is that, by using them, one immediately starts to generate content that can be useful for the organization. Hence, they naturally combine the codification and personalisation approaches to KM. This book aims to provide an overview of new and innovative applications of social media and to report challenges that need to be solved. One example is the watering down of knowledge as a result of the use of organizational social media (Von Krogh, 2012).

As knowledge economies become increasingly important around the world, it is essential that organizations are able to transform their knowledge into a competitive advantage. This textbook offers an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge management written specifically for postgraduate students in business and management schools. Knowledge Management presents classic and advanced concepts, models and frameworks using a clear logical structure, which covers building knowledge competence, the knowledge lifecycle, and integration of knowledge management with business decision making. An overall framework illustrates links between chapters and ensures readers can gain a body of actionable knowledge rather than learning isolated, uncontextualized topics. Based on cutting-edge research findings and covering the most advanced IT and IS technologies, this book emphasises the need for knowledge management to span boundaries across organizations, supply chains and partnerships, rather than being limited to individual learning and sharing within businesses. Knowledge Management is international in scope and includes real world case studies and role play scenarios to show how theories are applied in practice, and "think back" and "critique discussion" questions to encourage reflective learning and critical thinking. This indispensable text provides a dynamic picture of the evolution of knowledge management and demonstrates its full potential to enable better business decisions. Accompanying online resources include PowerPoint slides for lecturers and exercise questions for students.

Knowledge management differs from expert systems as the latter is more attuned to integrating all available sources of data, information and knowledge into a single, unified system of record. Furthermore, the capturing of tacit and explicit knowledge and its use in streamlining business processes differentiates knowledge management systems from expert systems. The purpose of this study is defining the practical, pragmatic and replicable approaches to knowledge management as it relates to the build-to-order and mass customization strategies of manufacturing and services companies in the United States. The overall research question guiding this study is: How is knowledge management being used today to streamline and make more efficient service strategies of manufacturing and services companies? The research is descriptive and empirical in nature because the primary data were collected using the survey method through fact finding technique such as a questionnaire. The results show the integration of increasing role-based knowledge management in the workflow of a company. From this study, a knowledge sharing maturity model is derived, which illustrates how the level and extent of the exploitation of knowledge in build-to-order and quote-to-order strategies have a long-term impact on the financial performance. Based on these findings, a causal relationship emerges from how a company manages its knowledge in the build-to-order and quote-to-order strategy based on these findings, and they align well to a multi-stage maturity model as a result. One of the main objectives of the study is to determine how the customer churn rate can be reduced. By optimizing business processes, companies can improve increase customer satisfaction while reducing the Days Sales Outstanding levels over time.
