In an economy where the only certainty is uncertainty, the only sure source of lasting competitive advantage is knowledge. - Ikujiro Nonaka Professor Nonaka’s words of wisdom are as important today as when first penned nearly two decades ago. What is your organization doing today to ensure your leaders reap the benefit of your organizational intellectual capital? Knowledge Management (KM) is the process through which organizations create and exchange organizational knowledge, transform individual and collective experiences into wisdom for decision-making, problemsolving, and strategic planning thereby helping create a competitive advantage.
