“As a researcher, I often work with technocrats.
The biggest challenge at times is to make them look and think beyond computers,
process diagrams, models, tables, and numbers. Create a bridge between the
skilled force and those that sit in the head office in front on computers - a
bridge that supports conversation, dialogue, and learning.”
“Some complex looking problems have very simple common-sense solutions. Children always let you know that there is more than one solution to a problem. They inspire you with their creativity, they teach you to forgo self-imposed constraints. Most of all they remind of the most valuable lesson of all times: you learn from experience.”
“In financial management, we talk of ROI as return on investment. So in knowledge management, we see ROI as return on ‘intellect’ or return on ‘intelligence’.”
“Success and power in the new world order will
be based on the capacity to continuously learn from one's own experience and
that of others. The ability to co-create, innovate on demand will dictate
success and failure.”
