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.
