The Knowledge Manager’s Handbook

Patrick Lambe, Straits Knowledge and Nick Milton have published the 2nd edition of the The Knowledge Manager’s Handbook. The book has been fully updated for ISO 30401:2018. The Knowledge Manager’s Handbook takes you step by step through the processes needed to define and embed an effective knowledge management framework within your organization.

The way an organization manages and disseminates its knowledge is key to informed business decision-making, effectiveness and competitive edge. Because knowledge management is not a one-size-fits-all method, you need a framework tailored to your organization and its priorities. The Synaptica team highly recommend this book and we plan to interview both Patrick and Nick about guide in the future.
