The paper “ Can Knowledge Management and Information Technology Work in Perfect Harmony” is a cogent example of an annotated bibliography on management. Nowadays, most of the organizations have embarked and are still going on with initiatives geared toward improving their Knowledge Management. Mainly, these strategies focus on Knowledge Management practices that are being applied by Knowledge Management professionals within their respective organizations. To improve on this, organizations as well as practitioners are carrying out surveys to assess new methods that can sufficiently govern adequate implementation and management of Knowledge Management. The main aim of this annotated bibliography is to assess based on research that has already been done, the way organizations are implementing Knowledge Management i. e.
