Building Leadership for Health

Leading Knowledge Management

The joint working group from WHO Knowledge Management and Public Health and colleagues from the Human Resources for Health group, representatives of the World Federation of Public Health Associations, the European and American Associations plus representatives of National Institutes of Health and Schools of Public Health led by my friend Dr Alena Petrakova. I was rapporteur for the group that developed this important initiative - knowledge management is an essential element of every health leader's responsibility and a particularly vital function of WHO. I also enjoyed working with a WHO mission to Beijing to help them develop a knowledge management system to review and compare health systems reforms.

Herb and Dr Janine Nahapiet

Janine who I know from when we were both at the the Industrial Sociology Unit of Imperial College wrote an important paper drawing links between social and intellectual capital, knowledge management and organizational advantage. This brings together in an elegant way many of the concepts that interest me. See "Social capital, intellectual capital, and the organizational advantage" Janine Nahapiet; Sumantra Ghoshal Academy of Management. The Academy of Management Review; Apr 1998; 23, 2;  here.  I should add that Herb has also been of very practical assistance in helping me to understand what can be done to address wellbeing particularly for disadvantaged people.
