Knowledge Leadership: Tools for Executive Leaders explains the concept of Knowledge Leadership by analyzing the strategies and tools of information and knowledge management. The book uses case studies of successful executive leaders such as Jack Welch and Michael Dell to examine Knowledge Leadership practices. The discourse covers global industries ranging from automobile to retail.

Knowledge is a prized asset in this rapidly growing world. Some of it needs to be guarded against plagiarization at any cost, while some must be shared with people for it to flourish and thrive. Across industries, individuals and organizations have a competitive advantage if knowledge and information is disseminated and utilized effectively. This book elucidates mechanisms that top executives can employ to combine knowledge management and executive leadership. It provides insights into macro and micro level Knowledge Leadership from global organizations and young entrepreneurs. While imparting this practical knowledge, the author also underlines the interpersonal skills that executives must possess to manage subordinates and customers.

This book would be immensely useful to students and faculty members studying Leadership, Knowledge Management, Knowledge Leadership, Business Management and Organizational Studies. It provides handy tips for executives of leading and upcoming organizations who intend to enhance their leadership skills and expertise in Knowledge Management. It would also be valuable reading for corporate training institutes.

The focus of this book is on leaders and their use of knowledge management in effectively leading their organisations for achieving high performance.
