Blogging the Sterling :: A charge to take something home

The theme for this year’s Sterling Conference is “the competitive advantage.” And carrying on the patriotic theme, there’s acknowledgment that the economy is in a slump. When one of the first comments by a speaker is the cost of gas, you know we’re in a recession, even if the economists and pundits and talking heads don’t yet know it.

We are charged to implement one best practice or improvement strategy following the conference. This is, in truth, the crux of knowledge management: inculcate proven practices throughout an organization. And, indeed, if there’s nothing gained for the organization by attending conferences such as this, what’s the use?
