Reviews and Awards
"`Review from previous edition Well written and easily readable ... Managers will profit from the recommendations, if only in the sense to widen their perspectives, and researchers with interests in knowledge management and interface management gain access to a particular stream of knowledge integration research together with some interesting proposals for further study.' Klaus Brockhoff, R&D Management"
"`This book is an impressive achievement and tribute to the power of multidisciplinary longitudinal research. Through penetrating case studies and systematic literature reviews, the KITE researchers make an outstanding contribution to knowledge integration and innovation in businesses and industries' Andrew Van de Ven, University of Minnesota"
"`This book offers the first systematic account of what we currently know about knowledge integration in organizations and its link with innovation. In addition to synthesizing this rapidly developing field of research in a structured and accessible way, the authors extend our understanding of knowledge integration in several important directions. In particular, the book explores the process of knowledge integration among teams, the role of knowledge integration in innovation, how knowledge integration occurs across separate firms, and the characteristics of knowledge integration in project-based organizations. A refreshing feature of the book is the linkage it provides between scholarly developments in knowledge integration and practical aspects of knowledge management in organizations.' Robert M. Grant, Eni Professor of Strategic Management, Bocconi University, Milan, Italy"
