Sharing Knowledge Through Processes
What is Knowledge
"Knowledge Management is the discipline of enabling individuals, teams, and entire organizations to collectively and systematically create, share, and apply knowledge, to better achieve their objectives"

- Ron Young, CEO/CKO at Knowledge Associates International
Two Types of Knowledge
This is the hard information we store in databases. It is the information of machines.
This is the soft information that we store in our heads. It is the information of people.

2. Job Shadowing
3. Channel Informal Discussions Into A Collaborative Workspace
"Most Activities or tasks are not one-time events. Whether its drilling a well or conducting a transaction at a service station, we do the same things repeatedly. Our philosophy is fairly simple: every time we do something again, we should do it better than the last time"

- Sir John Steely Browne, BP, Harvard Business Review
