"It's hard to share knowledge if you don't have enough time to reflect on what you know or what you need to learn. Most companies have squeezed almost all of the reflection time out of their business processes."Action alone is not sufficient. Being busy "solving" the AIDS "problem" will not bring us very far. It is when we reflect on what we have achieved, what we know and what strengths we have that we can build on a strong foundation to respond to HIV/AIDS.
--John Old, knowledge manager, Texaco
Beside the usual lip-service on learning, we do not have any strategy for learning in an effective way.
Even in "thinking" the emphasis is put on production, not on the reflection.
