Knowledge Management Cases in Asia/Knowledge Management in a Law Enforcement Unit
Since starting on the road to Knowledge Management (KM) in June 2002, the law enforcement unit, that we are going to discuss in this chapter, has become a front-runner in the KM field. Many local companies and organizations have studied the experience and sought benchmarking with the unit. This is no doubt that without applicable strategies and tailor-made KM tools, the development of KM would not be success.
We would not have been able to complete this chapter without the dedication and enthusiasm of the interviewer, Mr.A. We would like to express our gratitude to Mr.A for giving us a valuable lecture and sharing with us. In addition, we also want to acknowledge Dr Sam Chu and Maggie Wang for teaching us, guiding us and support us.
