"That knowledge has become the resource, rather than a resource, is what makes our society 'post-capitalist'."
-Peter Drucker (1909-2005)



The purpose of this web site is to provide information and materials for students enrolled in Wayne Smith's Knowledge Management 631 course ( Class # 16743 ) for the Spring, 2007 semester. This course is offered by the Tseng College of Extended Learning at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). CSU Northridge is one of 23 campuses in the California State University system.

My email address is wayne.smith@csun.edu. For email sent to me by students, the Subject line should start with "[CSUN Km631]" (without the quotes) [ example ]. Interested students may learn more about me by reviewing my personal web page. The PDF materials on this page require the "free" (as in "free beer") Acrobat Reader. Students desiring to generate PDF files under MS-Windows can use the "free" (as in "free speech") PDFCreator.
