APQC CEO, Dr. Carla O'Dell, recently interviewed Larry Prusak, co-author of Working Knowledge: How Organizations Manage What They Know, as part of APQC’s Big Thinkers, Big Ideas series to discuss the concept of wisdom and how leaders get it.

APQC CEO Dr. Carla O'Dell interviewed Ed Hoffman, Chief Knowledge Officer at NASA. Their conversation took unexpected turns: it ranged from why fear is needed if you want big change to what a CKO does in NASA (and how to discover the critical 5% of knowledge that matters) to what happens when the cowboy culture of Elon Musk’s SpaceX collides with a perfectionist culture like NASA’s.

They have found that the greater the flow of ideas within a group, the more productive it is.  That makes sense, right? Sharing good ideas and best practices rapidly, as well as harvesting the best ideas from a diverse group of people, should lead to improvement if the conditions are right.
