Nancy Dixon

Dr. Nancy Dixon is an early thought leader in the knowledge management field with her book, Common Knowledge: How Companies Thrive By Sharing What They Know, Harvard Business School Press, 2000. The book centers on a research study of how fifteen of the most successful companies leverage their knowledge.  Her work was seminal in developing the early theory that demonstrated that different transfer processes were needed for the sharing of tacit knowledge versus explicit knowledge.  Dr. Nixon has continued to advance the leading edge of understanding about the expanding role that knowledge plays in organizations.
