Knowledge management—subject of a recent domestic scan of transportation agencies—is the focus of feature articles in the September–October TR News. Authors present insights into the multidisciplinary approach that assembles, develops, shares, and applies organizational knowledge to achieve institutional objectives. Articles cover transportation knowledge networks and communities of practice; lessons from the use and value of knowledge management in other fields; knowledge, information, and learning culture; experience at transportation agencies, including a CEO’s perspective; supporting strategic change and preserving institutional knowledge; plus an overview of the research and applications—and more.
