Blog Post: A colossal Knowledge Management failure!

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen To my mind the failure by business but more so governments to understand the adverse affects of measures, rewards and targets is a colossal Knowledge Management failure. We have the knowledge but we refuse to act on it! As far as I can tell nearly all the research and evidence shows that rewards and targets do NOT work in complex environments. In fact they have the opposite effect of what is intended!

Tony Karrer

With an ever deceasing half-life of knowledge , just keeping up has become a major corporate imperative.
