    There are dozens of books and bodies of knowledge on how to design Knowledge Management Systems. However, this is the first book to speak in the language of the KM ISO standard 30401, and therefore has two unique advantages: easing the design of such systems for those who seek for ISO certification; and, serving as the North Star to excellence in KM, for whoever wishes to rely on the global collaborative knowledge of a first-class team of experts who designed the standard.
