Is Managing Learning Enough…Or Is Broader ACCESS the End-Game?

May 22, 2017 Leave a comment

Actually it’s NOT an either or question, but…I must add to the title right up front to provide a hint of where I’m going…ACCESS is not exclusive to learning. A few years back I was at a Masie conference and was blessed to sit in a breakout session featuring Larry Prusak, a former IBMer, billed as a Knowledge Management guru.
