Preserving Corporate Memory
Gary Duncanson, President and CEO of No Magic, Inc. presented “Preserving Corporate Memory,” June 24th at the 20-year anniversary meeting of OMG held in San Jose, Costa Rica.
In this witty, yet informative presentation, No Magic’s CEO, Gary Duncanson underscores the importance of preserving corporate memory and protecting the enterprise from knowledge loss which may occur when colleagues leave an organization. Mr. Duncanson suggests that the need to capture information, correctly understand the business process and modify these processes is more important than ever in today’s business environment where it is critical to do more with fewer resources. Duncanson reinforces the notion in this unique and thoughtful presentation that UML is a great tool for knowledge retention, and unless knowledge is modeled its value is diminished. Mr. Duncanson suggests that the enterprise should be highly concerned with improving their capacity to store and retrieve knowledge so that it can be used and reused.
