Abstract and Summary

Knowledge Management (KM) has evolved over the past several years into a form that the instructors of this program, Messrs. Firestone and McElroy, call The New Knowledge Management (TNKM).  The New KM is a variant of second-generation KM, which stresses the importance of using KM to enhance knowledge production in organizations, not just knowledge sharing or integration.  Thus, The New KM can have impact on the quality of problem-solving in business, and can also lower risk and improve innovation along the way.  It is a tool for creating quality-control systems for knowledge and innovation in organizations.
