'The New Knowledge Management' is the story of the birth of "second-generation knowledge management," told from the perspective of one its chief architects, Mark W. McElroy. Unlike its first-generation cousin, second-generation Knowledge Management seeks to enhance knowledge production, not just knowledge sharing. As a result, 'The New Knowledge Management' expands the overall reach of knowledge management to include "innovation management" for the very first time. 'The New Knowledge Management' introduces the concept of "second-generation knowledge management" to the business community. Mark W. McElroy has assembled a collection of his own essays, written over the past four years, chronicling the development of related thinking in the field. Unlike first-generation KM, mainly focusing on value derived from knowledge sharing, second-generation thinking formally adds knowledge making to the scope of KM. In this way second-generation KM expands the overall reach of KM to include "innovation management" for the very first time. 'The New Knowledge Management' finally begins to bridge the gap between KM and the field of organizational learning, which up until now have been viewed as miles apart.

Merchants of Virtue is about a band of people who determined to make their company a good global citizen. Herman Miller has been looking at some of the critical questions of our time - for the past 35 years. Is sustainable business sustainable? In an age where sustainability is key to future success, businesses must incorporate new strategies towards sustainability in order to give them the competitive edge. But, can employees in global companies make great products, take care of the environment, benefit society, and make good money - all at the same time? The answer, as in so many stories of people working together, comes down to a principle of management. At Herman Miller, sustainability triumphs because people commit and recommit themselves to the guiding light of company values and in turn changed the world of business. Here author Bill Birchard goes deep inside the organization to find out how Herman Miller has been accomplishing this goal - from the individuals who have become passionate about this topic - to the designers who incorporate ideas of sustainability into every product they create. Birchard shares not only the stories - but the details of how every this remarkable effort has been accomplished.

Enmeshed in revolutionary politics and faced with imminent death, it took a series of extraordinary spiritual encounters to bring Grott to a dramatic change of life direction. She did not realize she had been on a life long quest for the answer to "Where was God during the Holocaust?" until she found her answers. In her search for meaning, and then healing and reconciliation, she gives us a rare opportunity to witness the extremes of behavior a seeker may turn to before finding a way to end the cycle of assault and retribution. This unusual story is told from an integrated, heartfelt, political and spiritual perspective.

When I say that beauty is truth, truth beauty that is what I mean. Beauty in all of its forms is all the world needs. Tapestry asks the question why. Why do evil and suffering exist? For no reason at all, of course. The result of a grand accident. It is the recognition, however, and implementation of pure love and beauty that will bring the universe to its true destiny. We have the power within us to right the eternal wrongs of history no matter how big the mistakes—even one as monumental as the creation of metaphysical evil and suffering. It is true what Leo Buscaglia declares as the final assessment of The Glass Bead Game that love is the only solution to the human existence. Sometimes the impossible does come true!

New York holds a special place in America's national mythology as both the gateway to the USA and as a diverse, vibrant cultural center distinct from the rest of the nation. From the international atmosphere of the Dutch colony New Amsterdam, through the expansion of the city in the nineteenth century, to its unique appeal to artists and writers in the twentieth, New York has given its writers a unique perspective on American culture. This Companion explores the range of writing and performance in the city, celebrating Herman Melville, Walt Whitman, Edith Wharton, Eugene O'Neill, and Allen Ginsberg among a host of authors who have contributed to the city's rich literary and cultural history. Illustrated and featuring a chronology and guide to further reading, this book is the ideal guide for students of American literature as well as for all who love New York and its writers.
