“This book is the first book of its kind to provide a comprehensive coverage of knowledge management methodology and implementation in federal, state, and local governments. It introduces a unique total knowledge management system model that addresses the fundamental mechanisms, processes, and payoffs in the public sector. Dr. McNabb does an outstanding job at illustrating the tools and processes that are currently being used to create, capture, and share knowledge in public sector organizations. A ‘must read’ for those interested in leveraging knowledge in the public sector.”
