Today, no one is, nor can be, an expert in everything. In every challenge, it is easy to feel that you don't know enough to keep up with the accelerating pace of change inside our organisations, let alone the world outside. Start with the assumption that somebody somewhere has already done what you are trying to do. How can you find out whom, and learn from them? Learning ...more

This is a great book. It tells the story of how BP has implemented their version of knowledge management into their business processes. Their focus is on learning and on developing networks to enable that learning throughout the company. 
 
The book reads well (and fast), and is loaded with practical advice on how to proceed with knowledge efforts, as opposed to my usual more academic KM readings. The authors are clearly focused on "doing something" rather than waiting to figure out the best way t

I hate reviewing textbooks, but this one was actually a pretty fun read. The authors use a lot of examples of techniques as they applied them at BP, among others, and they are pretty well known in the field, so they have a fair bit of credibility.
 
This is aimed more at practitioners than academics, - it's heavily practical, although there is some theory covered in late chapters. Since that theory was right up my alley with Communities of Practice, this book and I got along just fine. I have a s

As Knowledge Manager for an organisation I was looking for some background information and practical help.
This is one of the more helpful KM books that I have seen for some time.
Some books on KM tend to be very technical/theoretical/academical, but this book leads you by the hand in some time-tested methods. Thing like 'corporate yellow pages', After-Action Review, communities of practice for continuous learning, practices for testing and validating captured content make it immediately useful.

COLLINS, Chris. PARCELL, Geoff. Učimo se leteti: priročnik za upravljanje znanja. Ljubljana: GV ZALOŽBA. 2002. ISBN 86-7061-288-7

Danes se vsi bojijo vprašati za pomoč, saj se bojijo, da bodo s tem pokazali nesposobnost. Kar seveda ni res. Pokazali boste veliko mero sposobnosti in zavzetosti za delo. Kar je zelo pohvalno.

Znanje se upravlja z razumevanjem, motivacijo in pomočjo. Predvsem z drugačno miselnostjo in zavzetostjo z delom.

Predvsem je ta knjiga hvalnica BP.

not a book about aviation but knowledge management in a topical oil company. It is an excellent reference for the subject and one which has direct application into the world of business resilience, crisis management and continuity. In particular the 'peer review' technique works and the discussion of the military debrief - US process 'after action report' is useful. The biggest barrier to KM - people's attitudes in a knowledge industry - hum
