The role of the knowledge activist is to be unreasonable, to identify and combine grains of truth that have the potential to become pearls. The Knowledge Activist’s Handbook demonstrates through the medium of storytelling how individuals can combine emotion and reflection to create their own knowledge. Victor Newman, Pfizer’s Chief Knowledge Officer, has written a guide that is provocative and counter-cultural. It turns ideas on their heads and entertains while telling stories that offer insights and concrete strategies for improving knowledge and its use in any organization. Each chapter includes stories from the author’s consulting experiences and ends with five immediate action points. Can make an interesting counterpoint to the book on “Tribes” and add to the strategic assets of the CSG community in moving this market forward.
