PKM: The Book

Harold Jarche

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. I think there is enough to write a book! 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!
