Knowledge Management Initiatives in Singapore by Madanmohan Rao, Margaret Tan World Scientific: Knowledge Management Initiatives in Singapore

Knowledge Management Initiatives in Singapore is the first book that provides descriptive analyses of the award-winning knowledge management initiatives undertaken by the public sector organisations in Singapore.

The book focuses on 12 organisations from the Singapore Public sector that won the knowledge management excellence awards in 2008, 2009 and 2010 run by the Information and Knowledge Management Society of Singapore.

  • Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC)
  • Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA)
  • Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS)
  • Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS)
  • Jurong Town Corporation (JTC)
  • Ministry of Finance (MOF)

  • Singapore Armed Forces (SAF)
  • Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee (SYOGOC)
  • Singapore Police Force: Police Technology Department (SPF-PTD)
  • Supreme Court of Singapore (SC)
  • Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA)
Based on these successful case studies, the book provides a comprehensive overview and approach for organisations to understand how to plan and execute their knowledge management journeys.

This includes analysing the rationale, thereby calibrating specific knowledge management plans and roles; identifying resources for knowledge management implementation (such as people, process and technology); and evaluating the outcomes and future paths.

This book will be invaluable to managers, knowledge management practitioners and graduate students in the field, offering deep actionable insights on the implementation of knowledge management projects and providing a balanced perspective of organisational knowledge management encompassing both theory and pragmatism.
