Revision with unchanged content. Today knowledge is considered as the most important resource of a company and the source of competitive advantage. This is the reason why knowledge management has taken a very important role in today's companies. However, implementing a well functioning knowledge management system and getting the employees to use it is not always easy. Barriers like e.g. lack of time, not-invented here syndrome and the believe that knowledge is power, have to be overcome. This book shows managers how to overcome these barriers and to create a company culture in which knowledge is openly shared. It integrates the three concepts, motivation of employees, company culture and knowledge management with the aim of pointing out how they are connected and how they can be combined to form a well functioning knowledge management within a company. The research is supplemented with best practice examples in form of interviews of 9 knowledge management experts from companies with a well functioning knowledge management system.
