SPEAKER: Wei Zhang, Associate Professor, College of Management, Univ. of Mass, Boston
TOPIC: While knowledge management has been popular among US companies, Chinese companies have not practiced it until recently. In this presentation, Dr. Zhang will discuss knowledge management practices in two Chinese companies that he has recently visited. Both companies are quite successful, but they differ from each other greatly in almost every aspect of their knowledge management practices. He will compare-and-contrast their practices and also explore the role culture plays in their knowledge management practices. [Partial Slide Deck]
