“Organizational knowledge management shouldn’t be a function—it should be a capability. The difference in those words makes them worlds apart. A function implies constraint, clear delineation of roles, and perhaps even silos of responsibilities! Conversely, creation of new knowledge, sharing of expertise, and taking advantage of organizational expertise can, and should, be done by everyone in an organization.”
-Jim Lee

“Dark events alone have significant impact on organizations. However, when events are considered in concert with processes and data, the impact magnifies. The same can be said of patterns of events and the coordinated actions that can and should be made in a timely manner.”
-Jim Sinur

“With fewer employees sticking around for 10, 20, and 30 years, it’s even more important for organizations to continuously capture and codify knowledge. If a new set of people comes through the door every few months (or even years), then well-documented processes, best practices, and lessons learned are some of the only ways to ensure the effective reuse of knowledge and solutions across projects.”
-Lauren Trees
