MGMT 6625 - Knowledge Management

This course will familiarize you with some of the organizational and management issues surrounding the emergence of information and knowledge as key factors in developing and maintaining a competitive advantage for firms. The course is organized around two ideas: knowledge as a manageable asset and why people in organizations sometimes don't use what they know. A basic assumption of the class is that organizations are complex adaptive systems operating in highly competitive, information- and knowledge-rich environments. This course will also use perspectives from Positive Organizational Scholarship as a possible framework for understanding how to get people in an organization to use what they know. 3 credits.
