Many organizations are embracing knowledge management as a source of strategic advantage. But already people are asking: "what comes next?" Likewise almost every large organization is heavily involved in e-commerce and turning their organizations into e-businesses. At the moment most e-commerce is focused on selling traditional products and services through the new medium of the Internet. However, the more an organization evolves into an e-business, the more they can exploit knowledge flows between themselves and their marketplace. This book draws together the two strands of knowledge and e-business into the emerging field that this book has called k-business. A k-business is one that turns an organization's knowledge assets into knowledge products and services and uses the Internet to market and deliver them online. Despite its newness, the Delphi Group have forecast that within 5 years person-to-person information e-commerce (a major aspect of k-business) will be a $5 billion business leveraging $50 billion in sales of other products and services. Capitalizing on Knowledge aims to give professionals and managers early insights into how to develop successful k-businesses. It takes a critical and balanced view of the building blocks of a k-business including knowledge productizing, e-commerce enablers and Internet marketing. It draws on lessons from successes and failures in the dot.com landscape and of the early pioneers of knowledge markets. The writing style engenders interest and readability supported by diagrams, screen images, check lists and frameworks. There are 'points to ponder' to stimulate thinking and decision-making. Five case studies and over 50 illustrative examples provide insights into the application of the book's concepts. No other book brings all the elements of a k-business together in one place to provide a thought provoking yet practical companion for those who want to capitalize on their knowledge.

The new knowledge society is characterized by a growing partnership between the university and industry. What are the implications for academics of such partnerships? What happens when the production of academic research is reorganized to reflect corporate structures and ambitions? What will future academic institutions be like? Does the nation state still have a role in determining how national science systems should be organized? This volume explores knowledge management in the university and beyond from the perspective of researchers working in academic-industry partnerships. Its re-examination of the role of the academy in knowledge production (and in society) is important reading for all academic researchers, for academic managers, and for students and scholars in science studies and sociology knowledge.

(Cont.) The emergence of these relationships has not been a mechanical and deterministic process. Individuals have played an active and important role through "storytelling" to persuade different players to participate in the new relationships. Individuals also developed individual sub-stories that explained the rationale for their own participation. I argue that there are three different types of compatibility between role-stories as told by the players: individual role compatibility, partnership compatibility and organizational compatibility. I then argue that it is these three types of compatibility that have determined the overall strengths of the new behavioral patterns, their ultimate sustainability over time and their replicability across space.

Background: With the advances in communication technologies and the emergence of smart factories, large volumes of data are routinely collected and stored at high sampling rates. The data generation and collection are so fast-paced that humans have to rely on computers for consuming as well as processing the data. This necessitates development of algorithms and methods that can be used to improve process performance and facilitate process monitoring. My research interests are in application of multi-dimensional visualizations, advanced statistical and mathematical algorithms tailored to extract meaningful information from large data-sets collected in industrial plant operations and scientific experiments. These algorithms will at first, be able to unlock significant information from the large datasets. Second, they will provide accurate means to reduce process variability and boost performance. Third, they will allow discovery of the underlying process dynamics that can substantially improve decision-making. Finally, they will provide recommendations for steps that can be taken proactively to avoid sub-optimal and abnormal operations. Methods: 1. Visualization: A control chart is one of the primary techniques for statistical process monitoring of real-time data. However, monitoring hundreds of variables simultaneously using univariate control charts is difficult. An approach based on parallel coordinates is developed to address this challenge. 2. Data dimension reduction: Principal component analysis (PCA), a widely used multivariate technique with various applications ranging from facial recognition to clustering is implemented. One of the drawbacks of using PCA for dimension reduction is that most variable loadings are typically non-zero. Such non-zero variable loadings (NZL) make it difficult to interpret the derived principal components and may confound subsequent analyses. To address this challenge, Sparse Principal Component Analysis (SPCA) is used but specifying number of NZL for each sparse principal component is a numerically hard combinatorial problem. Evolutionary algorithms in conjunction with SPCA are implemented to tackle such combinatorial optimization problems and gain insights about the underlying dynamics of the data. Least Squares SPCA (LS SPCA) is then introduced wherein uncorrelatedness constraints on the components are imposed to obtain uncorrelated sparse loadings 3. Real-time analytics: A novel real-time fault detection, machine learning based diagnosis is developed. Summary: This dissertation, at first, will focus on determination of number of non-zero loadings in SPCA. Second, it will compare the performance of SPCA with PCA for process monitoring that also enables process knowledge discovery. Lastly, parallel coordinates and LS SPCA are introduced for process monitoring and validity of the proposed techniques will be demonstrated through a benchmark process simulator.

"From its outset in 1912, founder Frederick G. Cottrell expected Research Corporation to function as a philanthropic organization as well as a business. His intent was to see if public service could be given precedence over profit making. This book analyzes both the engineering and philanthropic efforts of Research Corporation's formative years. And because its establishment involved so many other organizations, studying its early history affords an opportunity to survey the beginnings of organized research and philanthropy in early twentieth-century America"--P.

Universities in Latin America are increasingly considered instruments of social and economic development and face rising expectations in regard to supplying relevant skills, undertaking applied research, and engaging in commercial activity. The paper discusses trends and challenges within Latin American universities, as well as policy options available for strengthening their contributions to social and economic development. The so-called third mission of universities is often equated with knowledge transfer narrowly defined as licensing and commercialization of research. The paper adopts a broader approach and explores how the new role of universities affects all aspects of academic practice in Latin America, including advanced education and research. It concludes that policymakers and university managers in Latin America face an important challenge of defining a legal framework, sound management procedures, and notably, incentive systems that stimulate outreach and entrepreneurship among students and staff while recognizing and preserving the distinct roles of universities.
