In his book ‘Group Genius‘, Keith Sawyer explains ‘…the unique power of collaboration to generate innovation …’
He claims that inventions are the product of complex organizations and interacting teams.
I already commented on some benefits of a knowledge management system :
– reinventing the wheel
– knowledge walking out of the door
– if we only knew what we know
Better and faster innovation is number 4 in this shortlist of knowledge management benefits. (More efficient organizational learning is number 5)
I will add this book to my summer reading list.
