  On knowledge and power by MichaeláSchrage

  On serious play by MichaeláSchrage

Quotations from Michael Schrage:

 I think "knowledge management" is a bullshit issue.

Let me tell you why. I can give you perfect information, I can give you perfect knowledge and it won't change your behavior one iota.

People choose not to change their behavior because the culture and the imperatives of the organization make it too difficult to act upon the knowledge.

Knowledge is not the power. Power is power. The ability to act on knowledge is power.

Most people in most organizations do not have the ability to act on the knowledge they possess.

End of story.

Knowledge Inc. Interview 

 The ability to act on knowledge is power. Most people in most organizations do not have the ability to act on the knowledge they possess.

Knowledge Inc. Interview 

 You can't be a serious innovator unless and until you are ready, willing, and able to seriously play. 'Serious Play' is not an oxymoron; it is the essence of innovation.

Serious Play
