FOREWORD

 

With the intent of designing a more systematic, focused program on knowledge management (KM), in 2006 the Asian Productivity Organization (APO) initiated a survey on the status of KM in nine member countries and compiled about two dozen case studies of exemplary KM practices in the private sector, government, and nongovernmental organizations in Asia. This book is the result of that survey project. To complement the survey, the APO sent three factfinding missions to leading KM institutions and practitioners in Europe and the USA in 2007. Study meetings on formulating a KM framework, KM implementation, and KM measurement methodology were also convened by the APO to expand its research and planning function.
