The Source for KM Professionals, January 2007
“That’s not invented here!”  

By Alex Manchester, Editor 

Welcome to The Source for KM Professionals, January 2007.

A phrase I’m sure you’re all familiar with in your day-to-day work is that of “not invented here” (NIH). This is when you have a solution to a problem, be it from another division of the organization or external to it, but your “experts” reject the idea as not applicable, because their problem is completely different to the one previously solved.

In this issue, KM Review editorial board member Victor Newman presents several classic knee-jerk symptoms to look out for, together with three potential solutions to consider.

Best regards,
