Abstract:

Leaders of successful organizations are consistently searching for better ways to improve performance and results. Frequent disappointments with past management initiatives have motivated managers to gain new understandings into the underlying, but complex mechanisms - such as knowledge - which govern an enterprise's effectiveness. Knowledge Management, far from being a management "fad", is broad, multi-dimensional and covers most aspects of the enterprise's activities. To be competitive and successful, experience shows that enterprises must create and sustain a balanced intellectual capital portfolio. They need to set broad priorities and integrate the goals of managing intellectual capital and the corresponding effective knowledge processes. This requires systematic Knowledge Management. With knowledge as the major driving force behind the "economics of ideas", we can expect that the emphasis on knowledge creation, development, organization and leverage will continue to be the prime focus for improving society.

Keywords: Economics of Ideas; Intellectual Capital; Knowledge Creation; Knowledge Management; Knowledge Management Strategies; Knowledge Processes
