Corporate Amnesia establishes organizational memory (OM), the company-specific knowledge accrued from experience, as an essential and powerful management tool.Organizational memory is an intellectual asset that is unique to every company - probably the most important constituent of any institution's durability. Without it (the author defines this state as corporate amnesia) companies have little experiential advantage because they can't benefit from their own hindsight.Corporate Amnesia examines this hitherto disregarded corporate competency and relates how organizations of all kinds can manage this emigrating resource to good advantage. This book demonstrates how OM's employment can profitably address many of the tenure- and experience-related problems that workplace discontinuity has imposed on Western industry in recent years.Directors and managers in all types of organization will be able to manage their organizational memory within their own operations after reading this book. This unique guide to experiential learning will provides stimulating reading for business management academics and students.Arnold Kransdorff is a business historian who specialises in knowledge management issues with London-based Pencorp Group, which helps companies cope with the stop-start consequences of a constantly changing workforce.
