A Study about International Records Management Trust
Background:~ A key component of the country’s Public Service Reform Programme, Phase II, was to promote e-government and knowledge management as a means of improving governance and service delivery. Tanzania was moving forward to enhance its ICT infrastructure and to develop its capability to deliver services using new technologies. The Government recognised the need to incorporate records management in the design of ICT systems so that they were capable of managing, protecting and providing reliable information over time. This objective had yet to be achieved, but computers were commonplace in most ministries, and increasingly government business and communications were conducted electronically through email, the web, desk top computers and networked information systems.

Knowledge Management (KM) has been growing in importance and popularity as a research topic since the mid 1990s. This is sufficient time for many organizations to implement KM initiatives and KM systems (KMS). This book presents twenty cases investigating the implementation of KM in a number of business and industry settings and a variety of global settings. The purpose of this book is to fill a deficiency that I’ve observed while teaching KM. KM is being taught in specialized courses and as a topic included in Decision Support Systems (DSS), Enterprise Information Systems (EIS), and Management Information Systems (MIS) issues courses.
The deficiency I’ve observed is in moving discussions of KM from a focus on theory to the more practical focus of how to implement KM to help organizations improve their performance. Existing course materials do include some short cases and/or vignettes discussing KM in business settings, but I haven’t found any source that has multiple, detailed teaching cases.

Case Study about Taiwanese Elementary School: SWOT
Abstract: Globalization has changed things worldwide, and it changes the conditions under which English learning takes place because globalization has brought more intimate contact among people from different parts of the world. The international language used by people to communicate in this era of globalization is English; organizations therefore need bilingual experts to help them build up good relationships with other firms, making English more important than ever.

A Study about Analysis of Organizational Culture and Structure as a Basis for the Implementation of Knowledge Management
In the commercial world of today Knowledge Management and Organizational Learning are supposed to be indispensable prerequisites for the competitive ability of companies. Organizational learning can be considered analogous to individual learning. It is based on individual learning processes and means a change of organizational structure and/or culture with the aim of surviving in the dynamic environment. Organizational learning should be systematic and should include all the people concerned. Managers, in particular, have the potential to change an organization and therefore they should act in an exemplary way.
Introduction: Today’s business is characterized by rapid technological developments, intensiﬁed terms of competition and self-changing values. Organisations can only remain competitive in this dynamic ﬁeld if they change. Therefore, a systematic interaction of both organisational learning and knowledge – known as knowledge management – has become an important matter for organisations. It seems that the existing structures and prevailing organisation cultures, in particular, have an essential inﬂuence on the success of these eﬀorts. This article shows that organisational learning can be undertaken in a deliberate way and that people play a leading part in this process. A case study illustrates and improves the theoretical comments and gives a lot of tips for real use. Keep reading..

Peter Ferdinand Drucker (November 19, 1909 – November 11, 2005) was a writer, management consultant, and self-described “social ecologist.” His books and scholarly and popular articles explored how humans are organized across the business, government and the nonprofit sectors of society. His writings have predicted many of the major developments of the late twentieth century, including privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to economic world power; the decisive importance of marketing; and the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning. In 1959, Drucker coined the term “knowledge worker” and later in his life considered knowledge work productivity to be the next frontier of management.
The leading management thinker describes seven personal experiences that taught him how to grow, change, and age.

Abstract: Knowledge Management is among one of the buzzwords prevailing in the management circles. It isseen as a tool which can create a strategic impact. Theoretically knowledge management is seen to have the potential to influence many spheres of an organization.

Chester F Carlson invented the photocopy machine in 1938. He tried to sell his invention to companies like IBM and GE, but failed in his efforts as the companies did not believe that there was a significant market for photocopiers. It was left to a small New York based company called Haloid to finally market a product that later became indispensable for making multiple copies of documents.
Xerox Corp officially came into existence in 1961 after Haloid changed its name to reflect its core business. Over the decades, Xerox diversified into a number of other businesses, some of which added value to its business model and others which had to be liquidated. Click here to read more…
