Pavel -

a large international company has fired the whole Knowledge Management Crew.

Unfortunately in a cash crunch as we have today, work that is not DIRECTLY attached to revenue generation will be cancelled.

It’s a fundamental flaw in accounting practices.  Systems are too squishy & risky to put on the balance sheet, so systems spend  —  your salary  —  is flushed through the income statement.  Just as important as paper clips & toilet paper.

When times are tough… CUT EXPENSES.

In yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, IBM’s CEO is quoted as saying they’re already seeing “a pause in transformational projects.
