"Sharing Hidden Know-How addresses one of the time-honored problems in organiztions: 'How do you get people with experience, solutions, and knowledge to share them effectively with those who need those valuable assets?'

"In this innovative and useful book Kate Pugh shows how you can be a far better knowledge practitioner just by releasing the power of talking in your organization. A fine example of the new generation of knowledge books."
—Larry Prusak, author, Working Knowledge; visiting scholar, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California; and senior knowledge advisor to World Bank and NASA

"Sharing Hidden Know-How meets an urgent need within leadership practices: an effective conversational process for capturing and transferring deep smarts."
—Stephen Denning, author, The Leader's Guide to Radical Management and The Secret Language of Leadership

"Leaders have long known that the 'know-how' of experienced teams is key to their organizations' ability to achieve strategic goals. The challenge has always been to distill this wisdom and deploy it in a way that maximizes and accelerates its impact on organizational effectiveness. Sharing Hidden Know-How provides a practical approach to addressing this challenge, and, in so doing, improves competitiveness."
—Paul Lucidi, chief information officer, Insulet Corporation

"A fantastic replacement for the long dormant and never used lessons-learned repository! This book provides well documented and effective tools for really learning from your organization. As our business continues to go through transformational change, I hope to make good use of the Knowledge Jam to make that transformation efficient."
—Sheryl Skifstad, senior director, Supply Chain IT at a Fortune 100 company
