Knowledge and Information Management

Information and knowledge systems are at the heart of virtually every business interaction, process, and decision, especially when one considers the vast penetration of the Web in the last few years. Managers do not have the luxury of abdicating participation in information and knowledge system decisions. Managers who choose to do so risk limiting their future business options.
