The video is very cool and goes along with:
What could have happened if a forerunner to calculus wasn’t forgotten for 1400 years?
A sharper question would be:
What if you didn’t lose corporate memory with every promotion, retirement or person leaving the company?
We have all seen it happen and all of us have suffered from it.
What if the investment in expertise and knowledge wasn’t flushed away with promotion, retirement, departure?
That would have to be one helluva ontology to capture everyone’s expertise and knowledge.
What if it wasn’t a single, unified or even “logical” ontology? What if it only represented the knowledge that was important to capture for you and yours? Not every potential user for all time.
Just as we don’t all wear the same uniforms to work everyday, we should not waste time looking for a universal business language for corporate memory.
Unless you are in the business of filling seats for such quixotic quests.
I prefer to deliver a measurable ROI if its all the same to you.
Are you ready to stop hemorrhaging corporate knowledge?
