Knowing-Doing Gap: How Smart Companies Turn Knowledge Into Action

    By Jeffrey Pfeffer, Robert I Sutton (Joint author)
The market for business knowledge is booming as companies looking to improve their performance pour millions of pounds into training programmes, consultants, and executive education. Why then, are there so many gaps between what firms know they should do and waht they actual do? This volume confronts the challenge of turning knowledge about how to improve performance into actions that produce measurable results. The authors identify the causes of this gap and explain how to close it.
