This book takes a fresh look at human talent in organizations, focusing on employees at all levels who represent key agents of knowledge management in acquiring, transferring, and applying important knowledge for competitive advantage. The overarching aim of the book is to identify, define, and explore the implementation of talent management strategies aimed at facilitating effective knowledge management in an organization. The contributors provide a valuable fusion of two important areas of emphasis for current research and practice in human resource management: talent management and knowledge management. They illustrate the immense significance of the latter to competitive advantage and organizational success in our rapidly changing global knowledge-based economy.The generation and acquisition of ideas and knowledge, their internal transfer and application throughout the organization, and the cross-border transfer of knowledge - all through the effective management of human talent - have become integral and important parts of contemporary management.
