Today we had a new experience in presenting as we had to be judged by a board of directors and they would assess our consultancy and its methods of implementing knowledge based assets management approach in WaveRiders.
This gave us a real life scenario and we were all presenting as it the board of directors were not our classmates but in fact real WaveRider board members. This brought a level of maturity and professionalism to the presentation. Up until now we were presenting in our casual attire and for this presentation we were all professionally dressed.
This level of professionalism gave me a glimpse of what I might encounter out in the big bad world of business and I believe was able to make me more professional and strong to handle the challenges which will be heading my way in the future.
There will be long meetings and presentations and it is important to bring in a level of professionalism.

Knowledge is the basis on which a company can achieve greatness if it finds away to collect, store and use that knowledge. Knowledge is to no ones advantage if it is possessed by only one person who can then be transferred or tiered taking the knowledge they possess with them from the company.
The purpose of knowledge is to be harnesses by the organization and for everyone within that organization to be able to use that knowledge to improve a process or method.
