Description:

Organizations are changing rapidly due to turbulent environments and changes in technology. More and more organisations are tending to grow into knowledge-based organisations in which the proper management of knowledge plays an increasingly important role. Due to changes in the environment and technology more organisations are becoming knowledge-based organisations. This book argues that the old mechanisms of co-ordination and control will become obsolete. To survive, organisations must create a shared vision and an ability to learn effectively. This can be enhanced by effective knowledge management. This book aims to foster organisational learning through systems dynamics model building with groups within an organisation. The emphasis is on the process of eliciting the required knowledge from the various organisation members in order to be able to build a shared vision. The author illustrates how to integrate and represent this knowledge in order to increase the quality and speed with which organisations learn. The theory and methodology is illustrated by practical applications.
