Fears That Hinder Implementation of KM

Fears That Hinder Implementation of KM. Christian Liiipfert, an in house counsel with BP America Inc. had some excellent comments recently on barriers to implementing knowledge management: “Lawyers . . . do not normally point out where they have made a mistake, or even admit that they would do something differently the next time. … Lawyers can be resistant to sharing 'less-than-perfect' contracts or drafts for group use.” Finally, some lawyers fear appearing technically-challenged among their colleagues, and: “If the senior lawyers don't use it [technology], the system will not generate full value, as they are generally the ones with the most knowledge of the history of the organization and the industry, as well as being the major source of the know-how.” [via excited utterances] [net.law.blog]
