Abstract

Over the past twenty years, there have been intensive discussions about the importance of knowledge management in the business world. In recent years the conventional knowledge management approach has evolved into a strategic management approach that has also spread into other fields. As a result the new strategic management approach has found application ground and opportunities not only in the business world but also in other areas such as education, urban planning and development, governance and healthcare, and so on. The fact that major international organizations – such as the European Commission, the World Bank, the United Nations Organization, and the OECD – have adopted knowledge management frameworks in their strategic directions focusing on global development, is a clear indication that a strong link is established between knowledge management and knowledge-based development.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
