In many companies, knowledge management has focused almost exclusively upon the packaging of existing knowledge. Knowledge Entrepenear is designed to help readers boost revenues and profit by significantly improving the performance of existing activities and also creating new offerings that generate income.


In most companies knowledge management has focused almost exclusively upon the packaging of existing knowledge. Its exploitation has taken a back seat, while relatively little effort has been devoted to creating the additional know-how needed to innovate, discover and create additional customer and shareholder value.


The Knowledge Entrepreneur is a unique title that has been designed to help readers boost revenues and profit by significantly improving the performance of existing activities and creating new offerings that generate additional income. It shows how practical knowledge-based job-support tools can transform work group productivity, and reveals the enormous scope for addressing contemporary problems such as 'information overload' with imaginative responses.


Packed with information, this title is the first of its kind and puts a whole new `spin' on knowledge management. It offers truly practical information to help the reader create, manage and profit from knowledge.


Additional practical information includes:

  •  lists of possible commercial ventures;
  • detailed checklists that can be used for identifying and analysing opportunities for knowledge entrepreneurship;
  • exercises for assessing entrepreneurial potential and `scoping' possible products and services.


The Knowledge Entrepreneur also includes a unique CD ROM that gives examples of knowledge-based job support tools that have dramatically improved results in crucial areas such as winning more business.
