Summary
"This book written by a professor and a practitioner not only adds significantly to academic knowledge, but also provides the business community with innovative concepts models and ideas about tacit knowledge in everyday business interactions. Of elevance to decision-makers across the entire range of international business operations the book shows how the great reservoir of tacit knowledge that is created in every cross-cultural interactions is often misunderstood undervalued or neglected, and especially by corporate headquarters. Professor Ikujiro Nonaka, Professor Emeritus, Hitotsubashi University Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy, Tokyo and First Distinguished Drucker Scholar Carement Graduate University, California, USA" "Tacit knowledge is one of any firms most important, yet least understood resources. Various regarded as a source of wisdom, a store of creative power and facilitator of competitive advantage, tacit knowledge has long been viewed as an organizational resource." "In Creating Knowledge Advantage Holden and Glisby go beyond this to argue that tacit knowledge is also a significant factor which shapes and reshapes cross-cultural cooperation and competition. They illustrate this conviction with four case studies which take the reader into a wide variety of cultural contexts and demonstrate very contrasting experiences in untapping tacit knowledge in international business operations." "Although written with MBA students in mind who are destined to become cross-cultural knowledge workers (though, they may not have seen themselves in this way before), this pioneering book will appeal to all students and practitioners of international business for its cross-cultural insights about tacit knowledge in everyday business activities." "Copenhagen Business School Press-a specialized academic publisher of books on management, economics and organization - focuses on the publication, promotion and distribution of English language titles for the Scandinavian and international markets." "Copenhagen Business School provides CBS Press with academic resources of the highest order, including a diverse cadre of experts who assist in its rigorous peer-review process." "Some CBS Press titles are published in cooperation with its regional partners, liber AB in Sweden and Universitetsforiaget AS in Norway."--BOOK JACKET
