How to make knowledge management language agnostic

We all would have dealt with establishing a knowledge portal that can serve as central repository for documents, discussion boards, wikis, etc. What if a few units are not able to leverage the wealth of knowledge and learnings from the portal due to language differences.

How to become better informed and smarter: from lessons identified to lessons learned

Most organisations go down the Knowledge Capture route – they create buckets (increasingly in SharePoint) to store what they have captured to make sure that the best knowledge is available when a bid, a presentation or a decision is to be made.  And that’s fine as far as it goes.

Project staff evaluation

Dear all,
