Knowledge Management by Ruth Rikowski This book examines knowledge management from a number of different perspectives - social, philosophical, economic, cultural and theoretical. It includes contributions from a variety of KM experts and academics. There is a Foreword by Professor Deian Hopkin, Vice-Chancellor, London South Bank University. The contributors are: Bob Bater, Isabelle Cabos, Paul Catherall, Professor Bruce Lloyd, Ruth Rikowski, Dr Leburn Rose and Mandy Webster. The book considers a wide variety of issues, including KM and wisdom, KM and intangible value, web-based accessibility, KM and the library profession, KM and leadership, KM and cultural issues in both the developed and the developing world and thermodynamics and KM. It concludes with an alternative view on KM, emphasising how KM helps to ensure the continued success of the knowledge revolution.

Video: Positive Deviance



A collection of videos on Positive Deviance.

Positive Deviance (PD) is an approach to behavioral and social change based on the observation that in every community there are individuals or groups of people (so called Positive Deviants) whose behaviours and strategies enable them to find better solutions to problems than their peers even though they have access to the same resources and face similar challenges.

In the international development and health sectors, PD has been used to address issues as diverse as childhood malnutrition, neo-natal mortality, girl trafficking, school drop-out, female genital mutilation (FGM), MRSA infections in hospitals and HIV/AIDS.
