In the Groups.io discussion list of the Systems Integration KM Leaders Community Pavel K. asks:
It is painful to observe, that in the Corona crisis a large international company has fired the whole Knowledge Management Crew. We at SKMF have seen a similar case in 2015. But within 12 months the same company started to build a new KM team again. Because in the meantime, they realized what value the KM team delivered to the whole organization. It almost seems that if the knowledge managers do their job right, they become invisible. Everything runs smooth. So there is an impression they are not needed and in time of crisis they are fired. Any suggestions what KMers can do to communicate their value better?
