The role of the knowledge activist is to be unreasonable, to identify and combine those small grains of truth that have the potential to become pearls. The Knowledge Activista s Handbook demonstrates through the medium of storytelling how individuals can combine emotion and reflection to create their own knowledge. Victor Newman, Pfizera s Chief Knowledge Officer, attacks the conspiracy of tedium around KM literature. The Knowledge Activista s Handbook is provocative and counter--cultural. It turns ideas on their heads and entertains while telling stories that offer insights and concrete strategies for improving knowledge and its use in any organization. This is a book for busy people who want to cut to the chase and have some fun at the same time. Being a knowledge activist means deciding to make thinking about knowledge a personal activity. The Knowledge Activista s Handbook encourages individuals to consider thinking their own thoughts about knowledge by reflecting on their own experience. Each chapter includes stories from the authora s consulting experiences and ends with five immediate action points.
