I am currently completing my PhD at the Liautaud Graduate School of Business, University of Illinois at Chicago. Getting a PhD degree is unlike any other endeavor that I have been associated with, both positively and negatively. Overall, I am having a good time. The most critical learning to date has been an increase in my patience levels.
New Frontiers of Knowledge Management. I recently edited a collection of papers on Knowledge Management. The publisher's blurb: This book defines the new frontiers in knowledge management. It contains thinking by respected authorities in the field of knowledge management, information systems, and strategic management. The chapters range in their orientation from those that are more humanistic in their treatment, and those that take an economic perspective. All contribute towards deepening our understanding of what the new problems associated with achieving the goals of knowledge management are, and present possible solutions to the problems. Topics covered include: knowledge visualization, knowledge markets, ubiquitous information environments, knowledge flow dynamics, knowledge integration in teams, personalizing delivery systems and knowledge security mechanism.

Contributors include: Larry Prusak, Ronald Kostoff, Roberto Evaristo, Ann Majchrzak, Carsten Sorensen, David Skyrme, Mark Nissen, and many more.
Engaged Knowledge Management. I have a new book out. I authored this book with a colleage, Ms. Yukika Awazu. Here is the blurb from the publishers: The authors contend that current knowledge management efforts in organizations need to be re-focused so that they can be better poised for success. Topics discussed include: missing capabilities of knowledge management, knowledge management in strategic alliances, customer knowledge management, knowledge markets, and knowledge management systems, among others. The authors take a pragmatic approach to knowledge management and present the material in a jargon free and accessible way. Please see - http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403945101. The book is currently available in the European, Canadian, Australian, and Asian markets, and will be released in the US in October.
Welcome to my first blog. I will use this to post information on my eclectic, and sometimes controversial, thoughts on a number of issues ranging from how organizations manage knowledge, competitive and government intelligence activities, strategic management of information technology, management of technological innovations, to artificial intelligence, and philosophy of science.
