Sin Again

Following up on a theme of a couple of weeks ago, Dave Snowden has reviewed Fahey and Prusak’s “Eleven Deadliest Sins of KM”. I find it interesting how much more engaging this retrospective critique of a 1998 text is as a way of contrasting present and past, than a simple set of statements about changes that have occurred. There are some gems in here, including this one:

“In a modern changing world we need sophisticated executives, able to handle a concept, test a theory and apply novel ideas for competitive advantage or simply for survival. Bland consensus, the application of simplistic consultancy recipes and attempts to make things practical, in the sense of doing something familiar (which is the normal meaning); these are all the enemies of KM”
