Thank you for your insights. The potential synergies between KM and law are enormous, though challenged by the fact that most KM value comes from the application of tacit knowledge in specific contexts and leveraging relationships.
These things are difficult (but possible) to measure and hard to say exactly where the value came from as it is often through socialisation of diverse expertise that the new knowledge is created (so where does it get credited to - something laws and budgets prefer to make clear). I wrote a piece on measuring and estimating tangible value creation from seemingly intangible outcomes in 2009 explaining how to create plausible connections between what happened and valued outputs. This is necessary in order to influence business stakeholders in the language they understand (dollars). The real challenge in law is assigning the value to POTENTIAL, because IP does not have realised value until someone applies it. Knowledge and IP are like cash - simply existing does little, they need to flow to create new value. This requires trusted relationships, a wildness to constructively engage in open say sands preparedness to share the value created. Difficult things to clearly define in a legal contract as history of legal disputes shows.
