Learning from the past: impact of information and knowledge management on individuals and organizations over decades
Keywords:knowledge management, learning, organizations
In this Special Issue, we focus on the legacy and impact of such organizations and their projects and programmes, but also on how other organizations are coping with personnel changes related to current trends. We would also like to explore how individuals and networks, like Knowledge Management for Development (KM4Dev), act as a pool of knowledge which remains, even when organizations have closed their doors.
