Make Knowledge Management Pay Off Through New Collaborations (Dec 2000)

August, 2002


Knowledge management (otherwise known as information sharing, human capital, or intellectual property) has absorbed the efforts and money of many organizations. Unfortunately, many of these often expensive efforts have not led to positive returns. Studies of returns on these efforts frequently show that they fail to achieve their goals and sometimes are not even minimally effective. Typically three-quarters of these projects do not meet full expectations and half are total write-offs.
