Why is KM important? What are the benefits to my business?

In today’s knowledge-intensive world, what matters is ‘What you know’, ‘Using what you know’, and ‘How fast you can know something new?’.  This capability is the key, sustainable business advantage (according to Larry Prusak of IBM).

Knowledge management will reduce costs and time in the short term, and at the same time provide an inventory of experience and expertise for the future, allowing a flexible, fast-paced response to organization demands.
