This book will show you how to make any hospitality or tourism related business more efficient and competitive by using knowledge management concepts and techniques.

Helpful charts and figures make the information easy to access and understand.

From the editors: “Although tourism and hospitality, with their geographically dispersed units, can profit from enhanced knowledge management, only a small number of firms have implemented knowledge management techniques. A recent study shows that although managers in many hotels consider knowledge management and information transfer to be 'relevant concepts,' they report being confronted with too many—and unclear—knowledge management strategies, activities, and implementation techniques. As a result, they are not sufficiently familiar with knowledge management and reject implementing it. This book will increase understanding of these concepts and help to speed the implementation of knowledge management in the hospitality and tourism industries.”
