Abstract: As work has increasingly become knowledge intensive and globalized, organizations and networks face novel challenges concerning the management of globally distributed work. This book seeks to address one particular challenge, namely, the management of knowledge processes of global knowledge workers. This book provides frameworks and tools that enable the reader to consider how to develop, coordinate, and manage knowledge processes in order to create synergetic value in globally distributed contexts. This book is a must-read for any academic, student or practitioner concerned with managing knowledge processes in globally distributed organizations and networks.
