Turning knowledge into power (13 Jun 2005)
The ďless is moreĒ approach does not mean less choice or less knowledge. The key question here is: how do we use our knowledge more effectively? If I give you a 2,000-word report when I could have written you a clearer report in 200 words, thatís not effective. If you canít find what youíre looking for on the intranet, itís not effective. If you need to read so much and take in so much knowledge that the opportunity passes you by, thatís not effective.
Time is the diamond in the dirt of the knowledge society. We are constantly trying to find time. Knowledge is only useful if we act on what we know, so we need to balance the time we spend knowing with the time we spend doing.
