“Making it Real” contains stories from Knowledge Management (KM), Intellectual Capital (IC) and Organizational Learning (OL) researchers and practitioners.
Their stories provide invaluable insights, practices and lessons learned for future implementations of these new approaches to business management.
The researchers and practitioners, or authors within this book, bring a real-world focus that establishes a valuable relationship between KM, IC and OL and other prospective business users.
These authors translate their real-world focus into a language that others can understand. Each chapter is written to contribute to the stickiness of KM, IC and OL.
Whereby, each chapter's message makes a significant impact on other business users about how these new business approaches can help them to improve their organization's performance.
These chapters contribute to the momentum when the use of KM, IC and OL reaches its tipping point, where the critical mass is using KM, IC and OL to work better and faster.
So, “Making it Real” spotlights the researchers and practitioners who tell their story in a language to guide other KM, IC and OL implementations towards success.
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.
