Successful tribes leveraged individual skills, strengths and valued storytelling as a means to capture intellectual capital and learn from their tribal experts. This knowledge has led to scalable actions allowing the tribe to outperform competitors for food, land, commerce and innovation.
Knowledge management isn’t any different today. With rapid globalization and continuous technological innovation during a post–recession economy, companies are faced with many challenges to remain competitive.
