As digital business strategies continue to evolve, corporate leaders and information system professionals are attempting to develop successful workforce knowledge sharing systems designed to enhance employee collaboration, innovation, and productivity in today’s fluctuating, multigenerational environment.

The 7 Fundamentals to Create and Sustain a Successful Knowledge Sharing Organization reports findings discovered through a case study of a multinational corporation, referred to as Aerospace Inc., specializing in the design, manufacture, and delivery of aerospace products.  This case study explores an internally developed social networking tool used by Aerospace Inc. to deliver online collaboration capabilities to employees globally.  As a result, seven vital components were identified to create and sustain a successful knowledge sharing organization.

Dr. Patricia Pedraza-Nafziger shows how the combination of sound KM fundamentals and social media will improve the exchange of knowledge to accelerate learning. Leaders are provided with practical examples of what is needed to drive engagement across generations. The 7 Fundamentals to Create and Sustain a Successful Knowledge Sharing Organization provides a wake-up call for smart leaders to leverage and grow their experts while retaining young talent.
