This book is your guide to knowledge management for the future leaders of your organization. In other words, it ensures that they will know what you know and be able to apply your experiences to similar encounters in their time. It is replete with examples of successful knowledge management (with an eye toward the future) in current times and provides simple, time-tested steps. Two lines from a poem written in 1935 are the foundation for this book on knowledge management. How is it that a poem written in the early 20th century can be relevant in the quest for modern day management of our experience and talent? Perhaps you should ask yourself (and your organization) a similar question. Will the things we know now be available to the next generation of leaders or will the become victims of information overload? This book is your guide to ensuring future generations know what you know and can apply it in their time. In his poem The Rock, T.S. Eliot penned: Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? Every organization faces this critical question and the loss of generational information can be the difference between success and failure. There are proven tools and techniques for managing today's knowledge, but little or nothing about managing tomorrow's information. It outlines the steps you can take to create organizational memories that will stand the test of time. Unlike other knowledge management books, this one is not about the present, but rather is a guide to creating value in the future. It deals with information overload and "enterprise dementia" and discusses the steps in discerning what things you want to know as opposed to suggesting tactics for managing everything (the Holy Grail). It uses examples from the most successful knowledge managers from around the world and is a simple, concise guide for this complex problem all organizations face.
