Knowledge Management.
The first of the four papers in this symposium, "Knowledge Management and Knowledge Dissemination" (Wim J. Nijhof), presents two case studies exploring the strategies companies use in sharing and disseminating knowledge and expertise among employees. "A Theory of Knowledge Management" (Richard J. Torraco), develops a conceptual framework for information systems using Dubin's methodology for theory building. Drawing on existing theory and recent empirical studies, a theory of knowledge management is developed. Questions investigated in the third paper, "Signposts on the Road to Knowledge Management" (Allison Rossett, James Marshall), include the following: What is knowledge management and why is it important to human resource professionals? What is the status of knowledge management in organizations and human resource and training units? and Are consulting firms leading the way? "The Relationship between Human Resource Development and Business Strategy in 1998 Fortune 500 Companies" (Erica D. Kalata, Tim L. Wentling) reports on a study that found significant relationships between business strategy and human resource development in 52 Fortune 500 companies. (KC)
