Knowledge Activist's Handbook: Adventures from the Knowledge Trenches

Newman, Victor

The role of the knowledge activist is to be unreasonable, to identify and combine those small grains of truth that have the potential to become pearls. The Knowledge Activist's Handbook demonstrates through the medium of storytelling how individuals can combine emotion and reflection to create their own knowledge. Victor Newman, Pfizer's Chief Knowledge Officer, attacks the conspiracy of tedium around KM literature. The Knowledge Activist's Handbook is provocative and counter-cultural. It turns ideas on their heads and entertains while telling stories that offer insights and concrete strategies for improving knowledge and its use in any organization. This is a book for busy people who want to cut to the chase and have some fun at the same time. Being a knowledge activist means deciding to make thinking about knowledge a personal activity. The Knowledge Activist's Handbook encourages individuals to consider thinking their own thoughts about knowledge by reflecting on their own experience. Each chapter includes stories from the author's consulting experiences and ends with five immediate action points.
