Knowledge.. a product of knowing…is the milestone of a journey to competence.

Untill knowledge accompanies a good value addition the labour involved in acquiring it may be entirely useless. e.g. the development of a technology, say a superlative advancement in a pager, as consummated by Motorola, when the product had already undergone a transformation at some other place, even though the product or technology had not even started on its maturity phase on the product life cycle.

The path of acquiring Knowledge, however simple or however complex, does not fade out, for it leaves experiences which can be retraced for a similar journey, which can be now be made productive. Generally 40 % of all efforts in Design, on an average are wasted. There is yet a substantial benefit of reinvesting in proper Designing and planning to achieve success. Similarly, let the knowing or learnings be plethoric……IF it is carried out as a part of some indulgence in learning, it should end up, at last, as being helpful! and, Till the process of unlearning were in place.
Quotes Ariel Barrios-Medina, Knowledge at School of Pharmacy and Biochemistry — Buenos Aires University, at 8:55 am EST on March 7, 2008 “Knowledge is the only instrument of production that is not subject to diminishing returns”, . John Maurice Clark, Journal of Political Economy, 1923
He posted it in a reply to the Matthew Henry Hall caption “Knowledge, the most powerful sleeping pill”.

One Response to “What is Knowledge?”

1. Posted byAnirudh lamba on May 13th, 2008 at 7:45 pm

Dear sir
i am working in tata motors as a customer support manager and all the tools such as
2.6 sigma
4.dqctc (diagnostic.quality,cost.time,courtsey)

are being followed at the highest level

though i am still at a very early age of even being elligible for this fellowship.
but still i am very happy and highly satisfied to know that it was the most imprtant subject in the college time. all the things you told were very realistic in terms of the quality we achieve in the organisation and i was one of those lucky people who had an idea about all the terminologies they were using like fish bone,ishikawa why-why analysis,80-20 rule.
so i would like to personally thank you for teaching the most important aspect of the organisation which are helping me tremendously in my field of work

thanks and regards

Anirudh Lamba
Asstt. Manager
