Applying the best knowledge - the weakest link!

Many organisations are now much better at capturing, in a more consistent, collective and systematic way, new learnings and ideas 'as they occur'.

Many organisations are starting to get better at amplifying these new learnings, ideas and insights by enabling people to contribute their new 'learnings about these learnings', 'ideas about these ideas' and even 'insights about these insights' - very powerful amplification.

Many organisations are getting better at surfacing valuable knowledge and sharing it through various forms of knowledge networks, teams and communities - formal and informal, spontaneous and systematic.

This is great but it is only one side of the coin. The creation of new knowledge.

What I find to be the weakest link is the other side of the coin - the application of the best knowledge, once it has been created and shared!

You might say the wise application of knowledge!

Do you agree?
