The status of knowledge management (KM) as a mature science has long been recognized in the academic world. However, in the economic arena, its connection with companies and organizations has been more gradual. Jean-Louis Ermine established a theoretical and practical framework for KM in Knowledge Management: The Creative Loop, which was also published by Wiley. In this second volume, practical examples are illustrated with real case studies.

Modeled on the four-step operational approach inspired by “the creative loop”, this book includes four sets of real case studies – each one following the basic presentation of the fundamental material. Knowledge Management in Innovative Companies 2 is especially useful for practitioners, as there are numerous illustrations based on best practices for each specific KM step and for global project implementation. Indeed, the last chapter is dedicated to the implementation of a global KM corporate project.


1. Knowledge Transfer and Knowledge Sharing.
2. Innovation from the Knowledge Base.
3. Case Study of a Global KM Project.
